I try to do a little something special each Christmas season here at Church of the Servant, and that often includes writing something new to fit the exact instrumentation we have available for specific services. So, hot of the press is this new arrangement of We Three Kings.
I wrote the original arrangement for choir and piano back in 1994 (I was 6*) and just added string orchestra for my fine players at COS. The great thing about this anthem is that it sounds full and festive, but it’s easy enough to learn in one rehearsal. (I verified that fact last night at choir practice.)
Listen to the quick and dirty demo (MP3) while perusing the score (PDF). If you like it (and I know you will) and use it in your church before the end of this Epiphany, I’ll cut you a special deal on the choral octavo and string parts. I haven’t decided what the deal will be, but I know it will be good.
