For two-part choir, keyboard and 2 instruments - A setting of the tune Puer Nobis with a text appropriate for Epiphany. The arrangement comes from Richard's work, "A Little Advent Music", and the recording uses the text from that setting.
What star is this with beams so bright,
more lovely than the noon-day light?
'Tis sent to herald forth a King,
Glad tidings of our God to bring.
True spake the prophet from afar
who told the rise of Jacob's star;
and eastern sages with amaze
upon the wondrous token gaze.
To God the Father, heavenly Light,
to Christ, revealed in earthly night,
to God the Holy Ghost we raise
our equal and unceasing praise. Amen.
