        Clear text, much easier to read than the standard size. Also this edition removes many of the dynamic markings shown in the 1907 edition whilst retaining the page numbers and rehearsal letters: A, B, etc. This makes it easy to for the conductor to work with a choir whose members are using both versions. The paper quality is good too - markings can easily be erased!
        It is a paperback, so a bit flimsy.

        I bought this version because it is the one being used in a workshop I was attending. However, it is rather heavy and floppy and, although much bigger than the "old" Novello version, the print is not much bigger.

        The score is very clear and easy to follow, much easier than the older novello score. It is accurate. The only fault I find is that the outer covers are rather flimsy, which makes the score very floppy and difficult to hold, and thus making reading it at speed while singing quite difficult.

        I needed the Bach to attend a day-long workshop in Cardiff next week. I'm trying to learn it by listening to the CD. The service was great and as usual the Novello edition is excellent.
