Joel Raney. Matthew 2:9-11.

Original anthem

In the tradition of Joel Raney's top-selling Christmas anthems "Christmas Is Coming" and "Somebody Build a Manger," this SATB original is an up-tempo seasonal celebration. The optional handbell and instrumental parts add lots of sparkle to this jazzy setting. Strains of the familiar "We Three Kings" are introduced as the piece reaches a rousing, pull-out-all-the-stops conclusion. The Orchestration contains a Conductor's Score and parts for: Harp, Flute, Trumpet, French Horn, Violin, Cello, Bass, Percussion, and Handbells.

    My group had more fun with this piece and it showed in the performance. This will be one more "often requested" piece. Thank you once again, Mr. Raney. You're stiking chords all over our community!
