        York GB Pianist, organist, accordionist.
        Simple arrangement makes the most of the simplicity of the melody.

        Easy to read, though there are one or two bars in the middle needing looking at carefully.
        The widespread arpeggio accompaniment could have been simplified, I feel. It depends, of course, how adept you are at this kind of writing!

        Well arranged for piano.
        Not a bad point, but worth noting:
        The sample page online looks easy, but the flowing accompaniment in the middle of the texture requires to be shared between left & right hands, requiring good balance control.

        Not as easy as it first seems but reasonable enough for learning! Good cover but not keen on adverts on back page. Great value especially postage is free. Well considered buying.
