        Stockport GB Music teacher, Choirmaster, Pianist,
        Although the purchase price is high, it is OK to copy this music without further cost. The songs are carefully chosen to help a choir of developing singers to grow and improve and there is a wealth of good advice to a developing choirmaster, too.
