Star of the East, Bethlehem's Star represents the ystery and wonder of the Christmas story. Written from the perspective of the traveling Wise Men and incorporating a minor key, the text and tune invite us to reflect on our modern-day journey to the Christ child. Gorgeous and accessible vocal part-writing from flowing and arching melodic lines. Will be stunning in children's voices.
Voicing: Two-part with piano
Text: Greg Gilpin, inspired by George Copper, 1840-1927
Composer: Greg Gilpin
Season: Christmas, Epiphany
