J:10368623:C:We Three Kings
We Three Kings
arr. Matthew Culloton
- MorningStar Music Publishers
With a flair for the dramatic, this unaccompanied setting of the well-known carol uses three male soloists (one baritone, two bass) as the kings' voices over the choir. There is accompaniment provided by oboe solo as it dances around the melody and, in one passage, even quotes Greensleeves.
Creative divisi chorus sings backup to the kings and then takes the lead at all the refrains, which are set differently. Here's a fun and sprightly piece that will give your good soloists a chance to shine!
