        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.

        The format is excellent. Tips on how to teach songs and how they can be varied.
        Lots of useful short songs and rounds and a few well known pop songs.
        Useful resource all bound up in an easy to use book.
        CD with parts for songs and a few backing tracks too.
        Would have liked a couple more well known songs, maybe folk and fewer of arrangers own material, though it is always interesting to hear it.
