I Saw Three Ships
Two Christmas melodies, "I Saw Three Ships" and "O Come, O Come Emmanuel", are combined in this creative arrangement for 3-5 octaves of handbells, plus parts for a string orchestra. There are no bell changes in this arrangement which allows a more advanced bell choir to play from music stands or even memorize the piece. This arrangement is a crowd pleaser and will delight all who play and hear it in church or in concert. 162 measures. Keys of d minor and F Major.
