January 6th is the traditional Epiphany, the 12th day of Christmas and the feast of the visitation of the Maji -- though in these benighted times the US bishops move the feast to the nearest Sunday, thus this year the 12th day of Christmas will be the 14th day of Christmas.
In honor of the day, however, I thought I'd repost the video I put together for Epiphany a couple years ago. I first encountered this classic orchestration of We Three Kings by Eugene Ormandy when I was a child, watching my dad give the annual Christmas Star Show up at the Griffith Observatory. Since the recording is hard to find, and there too it the music provided background to a montage of artistic representations of the Three Kings, I took the liberty of putting together a YouTube video for the occasion.
