March of the Three Kings for Violin Duet arranged at the Intermediate level.
The Crusades, those religious expeditions to rescue the holy places inPalestine from the Muslims, created an enormous interest in both faith andfighting in the Middle Ages. French peasants from Provence in the 13th century,when the tune for this "March of the Kings" was being sung and dancedto, must have endowed the Three Kings of the Christmas story with all thevirtues and appearance of their own folk heroes nearer at hand. These were theFrench dukes, clad in gleaming armor, carrying brilliant banners and bejeweledshields, who fought for the Pope far more willingly than they would have for thelives of their own serfs. Hence the martial references in this text, sung to atune that is perhaps even older than the verses. Georges Bizet, composer of theopera Carmen, used the same tune as a farandole, or stately dance, in hisincidental music for Alphonse Daudet’s play L’Arlesienne (TheWoman from Aries). The March of the Three Kings has been arranged in the violin friendly key of a minor at the Intermediate level. Performance time: approx.  2 minutes.
