We Three Kings was written in 1968 for the Herbert Shiner School, Petworth, where Brian Knowles was Head of Music. Adapting the words of a much-loved Victorian carol to a new and unashamedly popular and accessible setting for unison voices and piano, it soon became a seasonal favourite, both there and later at The Royal Naval School (now The Royal School), where Knowles was Composer-in-Residence. Further acclaim followed in 2010, when it was performed live on the Alan Titchmarsh Show, and published by Stainer & Bell (ref. W225). This new arrangement, for SATB choir and piano, may also be performed with a dual-purpose orchestral accompaniment equally suited to the unison version, and available from the Stainer & Bell hire library (ref. HL398). The scoring is for double woodwind, four horns and trumpet, timpani, glockenspiel, xylophone, harp and strings.
