Your song for Epiphany

I’m not alone in having a special heartplace for the feast of the Epiphany. In part, it’s a holiday in the larger Christmas cycle that is hard to commercialize (in the United States) despite its obvious gift-giving tie-in, and so is easy to observe as a religious holiday in exactly the way Christmas cannot be. (Another part of me — with childhood memories in New Orleans — loves it as the first day to get a king cake.)

Now, a lower-calorie way to mark the day. The collected Christmas songs of Sufjan Stevens got me through a rough season. So for your enjoyment:
