The music score I'm looking at basically has two treble clefs and a bass clef all linked together by a brace. So 3 staves. And its confusing me... I don't have 3 hands? Its just for piano I know that so it isn't because of another instrument. Does it want me to try and play both the two treble clefs and the bass at the same time..? I've looked at the music and it seems like at some parts thats gonna be really difficult if not impossible?

Am I missing something here...? Suspect

Perhaps the middle one is for a choir actually... after a second look, it has L'art du chant in the title?

i would say you're probably right, i've seen a few sheets arranged that way, and the phrase "L'art du chant" just sounds as if it's related to vocals, although i don't know exactly what it says... The only other possibilities i could think of would be an accompanying instrument, or that the piece was originally composed for a pipe organ.

oh, and if all else fails, try just playing the top treble clef and bass clef for a few measures, and see if it sounds right! if you have a recording of it that is.

Okidoke thanks, I'll try it. The way the notes are arranged looks like almost constant legato and linked notes, with crescendos all over the place, sounds like it could be vocals to me too Surprised
