Very pleased with choices of classical repetoire to be played at funerals, serious events, etc. I will be doing more of this as an accompanist in the future, and this book is an excellent resource.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating Great selection of pieces with lesser known in with the more common. Particularly effective arrangements that remain true to the music. A nice range of complexity but I would say the book is most suitable for grades 3 - 6. I'm post grade 8 but have found myself dipping into this book more and more. I particularly like the large, clear notation, quality paper and the only thing that stops it getting 5 stars is that it is not spiral bound. For the money, you can't go wrong.

Customer Rating Whilst mainly for piano, can easily be adapted for organ. Relatively easy to play and positive comments received from congregation about the variety and appropriateness of the music. Arrangements good, but need practice beforehand as some are a little different from what one might have expected!!!
