We Three Kings of Orient Are by John H. Hopkins
Arranged by Ricky Lombardo
Scored for 4 C Flutes with optional 5th part (C Flute, Alto Flute or Bass Flute)
Includes score and parts
“We Three Kings of Orient Are” is a cheerful entertaining arrangement. There are sections throughout the work when some of the flutes play a back beat rhythm on the second count of the measure. This helps keep motion in the music and adds a little interest. It is important to be rhythmically accurate when encountering these sections. There is a recurring pleasing counter melody that is head throughout the work. It can become almost haunting. Keep it flowing and lyrical.
