Description: Alternate title for Epiphany: Traverse Afar, Following the Star
This is an exciting composition expressing the elation of the crowd as the Lord Jesus rode by. The bells from E5 and above are divided into three Bell Trees. Remaining ringers use handchimes and bass bells to accompany the bells trees. The optional percussion provides the additional atmosphere of a passing procession. Using the alternate title provided, the composition is also appropriate to depict the procession of the kings as they searched for the Christ Child.
