Three Kings of Orient

Accompanied; SATB

Here John Rutter uses oriental musical influences to create a highly original arrangement of the popular Christmas carol. The verses are dark and mysterious in character, with warmth and joy radiating from the choruses. This setting can also be found in Rutter’s Christmas collection Joy to the World.

Scores and parts for the orchestral accompaniment are available on sale at the OUP link below.
