Many choirs share a common problem: insufficient or a complete absence of tenors. In this collection the editors have sought to complement existing repertoire by providing easy and attractive settings that will meet the needs of a three-part chorus of modest accomplishment in all situations, whether accompanied or unaccompanied. The music falls into three broad categories:
1. Three-part settings of well-known carols in which audiences and congregations can participate, the harmonies of which are compatible with the usual four-part versions, complete with special last-verse arrangements.
2. Three-part arrangements of traditional carols for choral performance
3. New settings of traditional and modern texts.
