Description
It is a song about the three kings and the star. It deals with their quest, their hope and their sufferings... until they found whom they were looking for. I tried to make it sound like an epic and intense soundtrack. It has to be taken into account when mixing it.

The lyrics were written in latin.

I'm looking forward to hear your mix. Please, amaze me... and enjoy yourself !

Thanks.

Additional technical information
It is a song about a journey. So we need space and reverb, but not too much !

I'd like the female vocal to sound like a voice in the distance. So it needs more reverb than the male vocal.

It is a song with very different parts. So you should not treat all the parts the same way. Play with contrasts ! But remember it is ONE song.

Please put a fade-out at 1:54 and a very quick fade-in at 1:57 (on all tracks, except lead vocal and piano for both moments). Or find another solution that works better !

Most tracks were made with VSTI. The challenge will be to make the whole song sound natural and human.

Dear winner, please remove the first silent second of the song.
