Joel Raney. Matthew 2:9-11.
In the tradition of Joel Raney's top-selling Christmas anthems "Christmas Is Coming" and "Somebody Build a Manger," this SATB original is an up-tempo seasonal celebration. The optional handbell and instrumental parts add lots of sparkle to this jazzy setting. Strains of the familiar "We Three Kings" are introduced as the piece reaches a rousing, pull-out-all-the-stops conclusion. The Orchestration contains a Conductor's Score and parts for: Harp, Flute, Trumpet, French Horn, Violin, Cello, Bass, Percussion, and Handbells.
