Albrecht Dürer, Adoration of the Magi

Hymns and anthems for the season of Epiphany

The Feast of the Epiphany: The Manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles (January 6)

Before Messiah's presence meet
Blessed, bright and shining star
Fierce was the storm of wind
Hail the blest morn when the great Mediator (Star in the East)
Hark, what sounds salute our ears
Jesos Ahatonhia
Jesus Refulsit Omnium
Les Rois Mages
Let eastern tribes their offerings bring
Orientis Partibus: Prose of the Ass (January 14)
Rheinberger, All they of Saba shall come
Rise, crowned with light, imperial Salem, rise!
The Beauteous Star
The Golden Carol
The greatness of God in his love has been shewn
The Nations that in Darkness Sat
The Pilgrim Magi
The wondering sages trace from far
Three Kings' Song
To Blase the Rising
Touching Grace, We Princes Three
Tres Magi de Gentibus
We meditate the day
What Star is this?
When from the East

The Baptism of Christ

Non Abluunt Lymphae
O nata Lux de Lumine
See, from on high, a light divine

The Wedding Feast at Cana

All praise to thee, O Lord
Dear Friend, whose presence in the house
In Cana's town of Galilee

The Transfiguration (also suitable for August 6th.)

An image of that heavenly light
Caelestis Formam Gloriae
In Days of Old on Sinai
Light of the Anxious Heart
Lord, it is good for us to be
Lord Jesus, on the holy mount
Not always on the mount may we
Not long on Hermon's height
Stay, Master, Stay
The chosen three, on mountain top
Transfigured in the Height

The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple: Candlemas (February 2)

Angel-lights of Christmas morn
Behold a humble train
Down with the rosemary and bays,
Lo! to the Temple Mary comes / Maria wallt zum Heiligtum (Johann Eccard)
Lord, at thy temple we appear
No doubt but that she had the grace
