    Three for Christmas (Langer) [211.01]

    Christmas. A set of three separate Christmas carols, all with the number "3" as part of their title. Contains: I Saw Three Ships; Past Three O'Clock; We Three Kings. Clever variations often shift the melody suddenly from one instrument or pairing to another. To paraphrase the notes, "Three ships were seen sailing past at three o'clock by three kings as they made their way to Bethlehem. The three ships sail on through many variations based on nautical hornpipe rhythms. After a short transition, the Three O'Clock theme is introduced and passed around the ensemble. Finally, the Three Kings tune comes in a slow 3/8 ramble, with the pace quickening to the end." Score & parts. -the publisher
