Two Carols for Epiphany (Solo)


Harp Solo (Lever or Pedal). 3 Pages.

Epiphany in the Christian tradition is the time after Christmas (around January 6th) when the journey of the Magi bearing gifts to the Christ Child is celebrated in song and in pageantry. Janet has paired these two carols to create a harp solo for this celebration. “March of the Kings” originated from a 13th century French melody. French composer Georges Bizet (1838-1875) used the tune as a farandole (stately dance) in “L’arlesienne”. John Henry Hopkins (1820-1891) was an American clergyman and hymnodist and composed “We Three Kings of Orient Are” for a Christmas pageant in NYC in 1857. The three Magi: Gaspar, Melchior and Balthazar bring gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh and ask the Bethlehem star to “guide us to thy perfect Light.” Arrangements by Janet Witman.
