A quick post to celebrate The Three Kings. Or in old and technical speak – Epiphany.
Gib being on the god-fearing Catholic Iberian peninsula ducks and dives on this one. We don’t have a bank holiday on 6 Jan, but the evening before we do get the cabalgata de los reyes – procession of the three kings.
So here are a few pix.
And – it’s interesting that everything has to be done before 12 noon. Taking down the Christmas decorations before noon on the 6th, April fool jokes before 12 noon, our neighbours in Spain ensuring we shared a celebratory drink with them before noon on 1 Jan. it’s almost as if the day goes from noon to noon. Perhaps it does.
Three kings from Persian lands was always one of my favourite carols. Can’t bear that boring Cornelius version, but I managed to find a decent soprano to share with you all. I truly think this music was made for a clear soprano voice. Enjoy.
