Norwich GB I love classical music.
Music sheets were excellent and presented well.The preface was most interesting with a good historical overview written by the composer.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating This beautiful melody (familiar to those who ever watched the TV series on the American Civil War some years back) is an 'easy play', yet sounds fantastic, especially as you can improvise around the melodies, embellishing them without detracting from the main theme.

Customer Rating The mixed emotions of the composer are fittingly reflected in both the melody and harmonies of this whistful piece making it a suitable for playing when a mood of tranquility and peace are desirable.

Customer Rating This is a most pleasant piece. Not too difficult to play , but very useful for bow division and quick Scottish snap wrist movement and it has just a little double stopping, again not too hard but effective. Popular amongst students and therefore a useful piece to learn after grade 5.

Customer Rating An excellent edition based on the version in the film score, and as an added bonus includes useful performance and programme notes from the composer.

Customer Rating A good clean edition of a popular piece which is always well received by audiences.

Customer Rating Yuk. This was bought at request of my child's violin teacher. Is teaching child how to do twiddles but horribly cheesy, ultra Victorian Music Hall style, can't think any self respecting Irish musician would perform it without throwing up.

Customer Rating This is a wonderful piece of music to play and listen to. Not difficult to play and the piano accompaniment is suited to the violin admirably. A good purchase. Price reasonable.

Customer Rating Just beautiful.

Customer Rating I was looking for a haunting piece to form part of a medley with a Celtic feel for a mixed ability group of accordionists. Having heard this beautiful piece on a few occassions I felt that it would probably fit the bill. Having received the music I was very pleased to find that, not only does it fit the bill perfectly but it is also relatively easy to play which makes it perfect for a group of mixed ability players. A truly excellent piece of music!

Customer Rating This piece of music has became a standard piece, it is haunting and almost draws out the emotions from the depths of the heart Jay Ungars "how I play this piece" is most helpful. As is the inclusion of guitar chords

Customer Rating I know it's been described as a bit 'twee', but I have always loved this piece of music. It was one of the pieces that made me want to learn to play the violin at 50. Even for me, I can play this piece, slowly at first, but improving. This is a straight forward arrangement and an easy to follow melody. My order arrived promptly, as always, and I would recommend using Musicroom for music supplies.
