Star of the East by Amanda Kennedy and We Three Kings arranged for vocal and obbligato and piano by Mary Katherine May

Star of the East
We Three Kings

arranged by Mary Katherine May
of Quality Music and Books

Scored for ...
soprano solo with flute and oboe obbigato
vocal duet with flute obbligato
and piano

The Epiphany song, Star of the East, has long been a favorite of mine, and with the first year of producing our television program, The House United, and our first Christmas show, it seemed a good time to write an arrangement using this piece by Amanda Kennedy.

When we taped the music, the soprano solo was sung by Jan Brown of Holy Nativity Lutheran Church in New Hope, MN, and flute played by Wendy Grimes of the same church. I sang the lower vocal and played the piano.
