Ah, one of my favorite more contemporary carols!

Terre Roche: Star of Wonder
Choir Leoni; Erick Lichte, Artistic Director

From the YouTube page:

Star of Wonder in the heavens, wonder what you want of me?
Should I follow you tonight, Star of Wonder, Star of Wonder?

I am just a lonely shepherd, watching from a distant hill.
Why do you appear to me? Star of Wonder, if you will.

In the morning, they’ll come looking for the shepherd on the hill;
What would make her leave her flock,
for surely she must love them still.

Star of Wonder in the heavens, are you just a shining star?
Or should I follow you tonight?
Star of Wonder, Star of Wonder?
Shining Bright.

Of this piece, Terre Roche says, “I encourage anyone who would like to sing “Star of Wonder” at Christmas time to do so. I consider myself to be the channel through which this little song came into the world. I don’t “own” the song. Nobody does. It belongs to all of us!”

The thought that people are singing “Star of Wonder” at Christmas time makes me feel great!”
