Description
A choral piece inspired by a story of the biblical three Magi - Balthasar, Melchior and Gaspar, distinguished foreigners who visited Jesus after his birth, bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Music is set to the lyrics which have been used earlier by O. di Lasso, G. P. da Palestrina, F. Poulenc and few other composers. It is both a mystical and joyful story which I tried to depict musically in this setting. Crafted in A-B-A form, the outer parts are of expressive and contemplative character, while the syncopated rhythms and the whispering effect of the middle part bring the festivity and exuberance. It is scored for SATB choir with few occasional divisi and bears a personal dedication to my wife Dubravka. I hope you will find a pleasure in this piece and that it will be of a good use to your choir.
