Okay, we can’t have a Christmas Star without those three wise men.
Wendy Webster reduces the concept to nursery rhyme doggerel in “See the Wise Men Follow the Star.” Something to provoke the very young.
JJ Heller returns us to real music with a fresh take on ‘We Three Kings’ as “Star of Wonder.” It descends, musically, into the men. But you know part of it.
The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir R+Bs the gospel with “They Followed His Star.” Righteously cool.
John Burland has a hand-clapping pop singalong with “Christmas Star.” The wise men become we at some point, but you follow after all.
David Dunn has a jazzy interp on the ‘ancient astrologers,’ entitled “Star.” This is a fun bebop journey on the old story.
