Program Notes

The Christmas songs Bring a Torch, Jeannette, Isabella and I Saw Three Ships (Come Sailing In) comprise this uplifting holiday arrangement. "Bring a torch…" that’s the one torch, "Jeannette, Isabella…" the two women, and "I saw three ships come sailing in…" the three ships. Good Christian Men, Rejoice makes a cameo appearance, and with the other melodies, results in a variety of new sounds from these old Christmas standards.
