Gifts and Stars: The Music of Epiphany

Patrick Craig

Epiphany is a feast of abundance and transformations, set in the very dead of winter.

Saturday 6 January 2018 2 - 4.30pm
Wren Suite £15 (bursaries are available)

On Epiphany itself, the Magi, led by a star, bring extravagant gifts to a young mother and her baby in the stable, and the meeting changes everything. The Church Season of Epiphany also includes Jesus’ Baptism, when he goes into the Jordan to be baptised and emerges to find out who he really is, and the Wedding at Cana, transformed when he turns water into huge quantities of the best wine.

We will explore the season’s meanings through its wonderful music, which portrays camels, stars and much more, as well as its poetry and stories.
