The Fontanini Nativity story of Josiah: Even though Josiah was training to be a tax collector like his father, and his father before him, his heart lead him to create - wonderful inventions, and wonderful music. His most recent creation was a bagpipe fashioned from a bladder of a recently slaughtered sheep, two wooden pipes, some sinew and bone. Just as he finished this instrument, a brilliant star burst through the night sky. Josiah lifted the instrument to his mouth and joined the music of the heavens, welcoming the new-born King.
