A Christmas Triptych.
A retelling of the Christmas story through the panels of an altar panel or Triptych. Each of the three imaginary panels is represented in music starting with the left hand panel; 'The Angel and the Dove', which is the story of the Annunciation; then the left hand panel, 'Stargazers three', which describes the journey of the three kings; and finally the central panel which is the Nativity itself. The work is for mixed chorus with piano duet or chamber orchestra accompaniment. The text is written by Anne Cartwright with drawings by James Goodbrand.
