I Saw Three Ships
This bell tree solo arrangement by James Dahlgran of a Jon Schmidt piano arrangement is noted for the treatment of harmony, counterpoint, and rhythm. It is an advanced arrangement due to the number of bells used, key changes, and rhythm changes within the piece. The piece begins with the bell tree soloist playing the melody alone, then being joined by the piano accompaniment. Eventually, the piano takes a turn with the melody. With a total of 164 measures, this setting is scored in the keys of G, C, Eb, and Ab Majors.
