          Musicroom Reviews

          Interesting selection of quality modern arrangements of mostly well know Christmas favourites. Some arrangements are very elaborate which overshadow the soloist, but my main criticism is the keys, string players beware, not one arrangement starts in a key sharper than C major. The high quality printed score is well laid out but gives no guidance to the performer with fingering or cues, these would of been helpful as there is quite a bit of syncopated accompaniment making it rhythmically challenging picking up the beat. Some people will not like the over synthesised sounding backing tracks, which occasionally makes it difficult to follow a pulse. The backing track CD turned out to be a CD Rom and would only work in a computer. Overall this is good set for which I really liked the modern style arrangements, however I would have given more stars had it not been for my concerns above.
