Morecambe GB
For a small choir such as mine which relies on outside help for special services this book is ideal. To be able to tailor the performance to the available singers is marvellous. No more worries about finding men!

There is a good mix of styles.
It is great for those in your choir who find it difficult to read music.

Skipton GB Lead small amateur choir
Good arrangements. Opportunities for descant parts. Interesting and well written piano accompaniments. The flexibility is ideal where tenors are in short supply!

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating A very useful resource for Choirs lacking resources. Its description is 'flexible'- and it is JUST THAT!

Many thanks

Customer Rating Wonderful!
For those working with enthusiastic but unbalanced combinations of choir voices this is a godsend. It is like having your own arrangements to fit your particular choir - flexible, approachable, enjoyable, and gives real confidence to those participating.
More arrangments like these please!

Customer Rating This purchase was for a new member of my Singing Group. The rest of us are using this book for the 4th year and each year we're delighted to discover more wonderful pieces to learn. As we have no tenors, the S A Men arrangements are particularly useful and there are lots of opportunities for the men to sing the tune and for the ladies to do some harmonising. An excellent resource for any mixed choir.
