      Wiltshire GB Singing keeps me sane!
      None, really: I had to get this as the choir I'm in is singing something from it.
      If you already have 100 Carols for Choirs or CC 1, 2, 3 then there is very little extra in this book to justify buying it.

      Musicroom Reviews

      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
