The Spirit of Gambo - a Chicago Consort of Viols - William Byrd (1543-1623) - Out of the Orient Crystal SkiesOut of the orient crystal skies a blazing star did shine,Showing the place where poorly lies a blesséd Babe divine,Born of a maid of royal blood, who Mary hight by name,A Sacred Rose which once did bud by grace of heavenly flame;This shining star three kings did guide, even from the furthest East,To Bethlehem where it betide this blesséd Babe did rest,Laid in a silly manger poor betwixt an ox and ass,Whom these three kings did all adore as God's high pleasure was;And for the joy of his great birth a thousand Angels sing:"Glory and peace unto the earth, where born is this new King."The shepherds dwelling there about, when they this news did know,Came singing all even in a rout, fa-lan-ti-ding-di-do.Filmed March 29th, 2009 at the Early Music Series at the Byron Colby Barn, Grayslake, IL.
