Thepopular Epiphany carol, “We Three Kings,” was composed by theRev. John Henry Hopkins, Jr. (1820-1891) for a Christmas pageant forthe General Theological Seminary in New York City, where he wasinstructor in church music. Originallytitled “Three Kings of Orient,” it tells of the gifts of gold,frankincense and myrrh presented to the infant Christ-child by “wisemen [kings or magi] from the East,” as recorded in gospel of St.Matthew. It was first published in Hopkins' collection Carols,Hymns, and Songs in1863 and gained popularity through its inclusion in ChristmasCarols Old and New(Novello,London, 1878), the Episcopal Church hymnal of 1916, and the 1928edition of the OxfordBook of Carols,which called it “one of the most successful of modern composedcarols.”

Thisadvanced-intermediate level arrangement adapts the original 6/8 meterto a swinging 5/4 reminiscent of Dave Brubeck's “Take Five.”Suitablefor advanced high school to professional ensembles for use inconcert, recital, and worship. Full score and parts, 8.5x11-inchformat.
