Here is a fun instrumental duet arrangement (for two VIOLINS) of the traditional Christmas carol “I Saw Three Ships.” Flowing and rhythmic throughout, this string duet arrangement will add variety and interest to holiday concerts and seasonal repertoire.

This arrangement includes 3 verses separated by complimentary interludes. The VIOLIN 1 leads with the melody for two of the verses. VIOLIN 2 takes the melody for the middle verse. This song is written in 6/8 time which will help develop skill playing in this less common time signature. Also, using hooked bows for the quarter–eighth note combinations will produce a more flowing, rhythmic sound.

All notes for both VIOLIN parts are playable in the first position making this arrangement an excellent choice for early-intermediate string players.

The purchase price includes a 3-page combined score with both parts on each page (VIOLIN 1 and VIOLIN 2) plus separate 1-staff scores for each VIOLIN part (1 page each).

This arrangement is one of the 10 songs in the collection “Easy String Duets: Christmas Carols (A Collection of 10 Easy Violin Duets).”
