About the Work

Fix Your Eyes Upon the Star was commissioned and dedicated to David Sinden and the Choir of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church of St. Louis, Missouri in January of 2023. Setting a brand new Epiphany text by Charles Anthony Silvestri, this a cappella work depicts the Magi’s journey toward the star. 


Lift your heavy heads, O sages,

And look to the west,

Where appears a star

Brighter by far

Than any in all the firmament.


Leave your sacred fires, O Magi,

and look to the west; 

Follow the light

That banishes night

And sets all things upon paths anew.


Fix your eyes upon the star;

Let its light become your guide.

Long have you waited for such a sign

That blazes now in the western sky!


Linger not in darkness, my brothers,

Follow me into the west.

Take up your harps and sing, my sisters,

Sing as ones now blessed;

For this star portends

A beginning, and an end,

The birth into our weary world

Of Hope. 

     -Charles Anthony Silvestri

Duration - 4:30
