This is the third movement of a four-movement work celebrating the holiday season. This 3rd movement follows the traditional form of the title. "We Three Kings" serves as the primary theme, and "I Saw Three Ships" serves as the secondary theme in the minuet. The trio section features "Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella". Great for teaching form & analysis and perfect for holiday concerts.
