This will fill your needs if you want something a little different and still recognizable to your listener. I would consider this an excellent recital or contest number because of the complexity of the arrangement. This is Part 2 of the same number.

This arrangement uses the second half of the melody as a fugue. Even though each player must read and play his/her part correctly, the chart is very easy to perform. All you have to do is count and listen.

Coupling the first arrangement of We Three Kings with this would make a very interesting program for both are based on the same melody but are arranged completely different.
