      This is an interesting anthology of carols suitable for all levels of ability. Some, like Ding-dong merrily on high in 5/4 time are amusing to say the least. I sing in a small amateur chior that uses it as their carol book. We find it very enjoyable.

      My only review on this site, here simply to contradict the 1* review. It's no better, no worse than the Wilcocks/Rutter hegemony, and as such a very valuable alternative.

      I thought it was a complete waste of money. The music was not nice and it seemed to be l;argely one man's exercise in taking a lot of nice music and changing it to make a name for himself and ruining it in the process. Only for people who like the sort of stuff Britten did.I did not choose a single one of these carols for our church choir and the book will never be opened by any of us again
