About Follow The Star
Composed by Philip Case
Philip wrote 'Follow The Star' in 1984 for the Cherry Tree Nursery School, attended by his four year old son. The traditional nativity story is told through a few simple readings and seven separate songs, two of which are repeated with different lyrics, and one (the 'narrative theme') as a finale reprise. It is composed deliberately for young children (from the age of three upwards) and has been performed at other schools by children aged up to 13 years.
The whole show lasts approximately 40 minutes, of which some 25 minutes is music. There is an emphasis on melody and rhythm and the music is available, both by download and by CD, both with all lyrics sung as guide vocals and as backing-only tracks for live performances.
We are also working on a Powerpoint presentation/Karaoke version of all lyrics and suggested readings. This will be available to download from the customer area soon!
A quick sample, with one verse from each of the seven songs is available below, along with a download link to a sample score and lyric sheet:
