Stella, quam viderant Magi
author of text
Matthew 2: 9-10

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The short setting of the Epiphany text Stella, quam viderant Magi is written for four closely spaced voices (a voce pari). Its chief moment of textual interest is the final representation of the Magi ‘rejoicing with great joy’, with more rapid syncopation and runs of semiquavers.
