Customer Rating Bit of a mixed bag - some excellent new carols but some of the congregational arrangements are not of the best quality and could have been omitted to make space for more useful pieces.

Customer Rating A great book to dip into for established groups looking for something new. A good balance between accompanied and a capella arrangements.
