Alazar, a simple farmer who is also a beekeeper, meets the Three Wise Men Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar, who have set off to celebrate the arrival on earth of the Messiah. Alazar's magic bees become magically transformed into the tail of the bright comet which leads the four of them to the manger. At first, the brave young farmer's son is on the point of leaving the Wise Men to their fate because he has been forced against his will by their magic powers to leave his pregnant wife Izirah behind. He only very reluctantly agrees to the Kings' request to accompany them. Although the Three Wise Men make it very clear to him how important the Messiah's arrival on earth is, the relationship between the four men remains very tense. Nevertheless, despite all disagreements, our travelling companions soon become firm friends -and after several exciting adventures they finally succeed in locating the manger. The Three Kings then allow Alazar to return home to his loving wife. Written by Anonymous

About the music
This third Image Music release features Ennio Morricone working with his son Andrea Morricone. Andrea has long been his father's musical assistant and has contributed themes to some of his father's scores, notably the famous love theme from Cinema Pradiso. Andrea is now a respected film composer in his own right, with both film and television works to his credit. The music from IL Quarto Re (1995) is full of orchestral and choral splendour, with all the usual Morricone elements that make The Mission so popular. There are three distinctive and attractive themes. 'Exultat' is stirring and addictive, 'Il Quarto Re' is reflective and beautiful, and 'Con Giogia Serena' is triumphant and bright, very similar to one of the themes in City of Joy. All are given both orchestral and choral arrangements and are developed sufficiently to keep the music fresh. Some secondary tension material is also provided, but even this is more agreeable than you might think.(Here)

About Jing

Our friend, Rodison C. Leonardo, was born in the Philippines, a native Filipino. You can also call him by his nickname Jing. He's 34 years old, a Roman Catholic. He holds a degree of Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communication Engineering. There was once an occurrence in his life he wanted to enter Priesthood after his graduation in college. For some personal reasons, he didn't continue to pursue it. So now he's been working at Holcim Cement Plant for eight years. Holcim is one of the biggest cement plants in the Philippines, and he holds the position there as Maintenance Planner. Until now it's very hard to admit that he's still a bachelor at his mature age. He only diverts his time to watch film or hear music after his work. He loves film and music. His real hobbies are to collect music in LPs and CDs, and also to collect films in VHS, VCD and DVD as well. He started to like Sir Ennio Morricone's music when he saw the film "The Mission" in 1995. He considered The Mission music 'very influential' to him. Seeking more of Sir Ennio's works, he joined in one of Morricone's prestige forums. There he met many friends in different nations who really loved to help those who were beginners of knowing Sir Ennio and his magnificent scores. He still makes contact to some of them through e-mail. Knowing friends who have one common goal, "to spread the music of Sir Ennio Morricone", is a very remarkable and tremendous experience for him. It's so great to know there's someone in the Philippines who really appreciate Maestro Ennio Morricone, truly the legend of film music.
