        Camberley GB Favourite composer, Chopin
        I am enchanted by the music, both learning it and playing. I have used a few of the pieces in church (incuding the carol service) and a couple of group music evenings.

        Laugharne GB I love my piano
        A beautiful, different take on favourite Christmas carols. Very sweet, calming pieces with a definite nod to Eric Satie and playable by anyone of Grade 6 ish standard. Would absolutely recommend.
        No bad points at all.

        I heard Ding Dong Merrily arranged by Nigel Hess on Classic FM and I knew I had to get hold of it. These arrangements are absolutely beautiful. I played through them ticking the ones I particularly liked, and most had ticks beside them! The standard I would say is grade 6 - 8. As the title of the book suggests, these arrangements are mainly quiet and reflective.

        I heard this music on Classic fm and that is why I bought it, the arrangements of the various carols for piano are well done and make them more interesting - plus they can be used in Church as opening or closing music.

        This book is a treasure. For a start it's British with the correct tunes for Away in a Manger, O Little Town of Bethlehem etc. The arrangements are not too difficult. I've learned to play five so far. This is certainly one of my better purchases.
