(As with gladness)Gordon Thornett /arr. Gordon Thornett - Gordon Thornett
Publisher Desc. This new setting of the Christmas/Epiphany words, 'As with gladness, men of old did the guiding star behold' seeks to emphasize the joyful nature of the visit of the Magi to the Christ child. Set in a lively 7/8 time, it is mainly in four parts (SATB), although the 3rd verse, 'As they offered gifts most rare' is for men's voices only (TTBB). There is also a quieter, more meditative section, reflecting the words of verse 4, 'Holy Jesus, every day...' The accompaniment is for piano or organ, and orchestrations are available from the composer [contact: [email protected]]. The version with orchestra has been performed several times in Symphony Hall, Birmingham and the Barbican Hall, London. A version also exists for choir plus brass ensemble.
