Epiphany 2016

Epiphany                                                                   Jaime Huguet, Catalonia, ca 1464

Today is Epiphany, a celebration of the visit of the three kings to the infant Jesus, and their recognition of Him as the King of Kings. Our music for the day was written in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in 1857 by Episcopal clergyman, John Henry Hopkins, Jr.

Words for the day come from the Modernist writer, T. S. Eliot, reading his poem, Journey of the Magi, for a BBC broadcast during World War II.

This post marks the end of our Christmas 2015-16 holiday series. Hope you enjoyed it.
