Christmas Carol Spotlight: March of the Three Kings

This Christmas carol is an excerpt (part XIV) from a Christmas Cantata (Hodie) by Ralph Vaughan Williams (another Christmas music hero of mine.)

It serves to tell of the travels of the three kings, and introduces each of them and their gifts.

This portion of the cantata was written expressly for Williams' wife, Ursula.  I think things like that are terribly sweet and enduring, even if the music involved in this case isn't particularly romantic.
