Night of the Magi

$3.10 per copy*

This work is the second in the ‘Night of…’ Christmas Trilogy commissioned by the Peterborough Singer of Canada in 2012. It takes as its premise the story of the Magi following the star from distant lands to Jerusalem and ultimately the Jesus child. Then the fun begins. Imagine the astonishment as the weary travellers as they encounter yet another mirage on the horizon that was really the city of Jerusalem! The music brings together both modern and classical elements in a unique dialogue to tell the story in a fresh and satisfying way.

Night of the Magi can be performed with just piano and voices, but the optional instrumental backing and percussion will add grandeur and spaciousness to the impact. Full score available with the backing package (Flute, 2 Trumpets, Horn in Eb, Trombone, Euphonium/trombone, Tuba in Eb, Bass Guitar, Perc I: Timpani, Perc II: Bongos, Finger Cymbals, Suspended Cymbals, Tambourine)
