Composed by Tim Attride. Christian, Sacred, General Worship, Christmas, New Year's. 6 pages. Published by Tim Attride (S0.16658).

Item Number: S0.16658

Two Epiphany anthems for the price of one.  Firstly, "Arabia's Magi sought him" is a setting of original English words by the composer which references the journey of the Magi, their gifts and the redemption of the world following a humble birth.  This three-part (S,A,Bar.) homophonic piece is only one page in length but, in its 45-second duration, sets the scene for the following Latin motet.  "Ubi est qui natus est" uses the words from Matthew 2,2 when the Magi ask after the new-born King of Judea.  Comprising three short contrapuntal sections, this section lasts about 1.15.  Either section (English or Latin) may be used independently or, as intended, with the English followed immediately by the Latin.
Marked as "Early Intermediate" because there are a few intervals which may catch the unwary sight-reader.  However, with practice, this is certainly not difficult.  (And, yes, I know this is not actually a "Christmas" piece, but it may well be included in a service of Lessons & Carols - and there was no option for Epiphany.)
N.B. The second & third pages are for reference; please print (& back) pages 1 & 3-5 for the complete work, or 3-5 to miss the title page.
