        At least 50 per cent of the pieces had favourable response.
        One or two pieces were perceived as ‘too childish’ by my pupils.

        Each piece contains footnotes about the piece, although could be far more informative.
        Only 21 pieces - very disappointing considering supposed to cover past few decades with probably over 200 pieces available.
