        This book has well known and less well known rounds, some short and simple, some long and more complex.

        Love the variety of music. After at least five years of working with this book, we have probably only learnt about half; so lots more material to tackle. The Mozart pieces are fab.

        None but ok if you like medieval songs
        Mostly medieval rounds not suitable for children and very boring tunes

        This book is small but full of a wide variety of Rounds. Great fun! The skills needed for these ranges from beginners (rounds that most people know) to more complex tunes and larger numbers of singers required.

        A very useful resource for a mixed and varied choir. Great fun.

        I can't sing in a Mozart opera, or play in a Mozart symphony, but I can sing in "Friends, forget the cares...." and feel the magic! Having mastered that, we began at the beginning and were impressed with the sophistication of "Adieu, Sweet Amaryllis" by Anonymous, which taught me that early music was not less interesting. Our little front room choir have loved this collection. Thank you Kings Singers.

        Only for good singers. Suitable for people who will pick up a piece of music, sing it for fun and then discard it. There was not much for a choir to work on, as singers of lesser ability would have to work on these pieces and few of the pieces had enough substance (or length) to be worth working on. Actually I found it rather a dull choice. I regret having spent money on it.

        I think this is an excellent book and I have been using it with my choir. Some lovely rounds from varied authors.

        I really like this book - it has some easy pieces (some are quite unusual as well but very children friendly) all the way up to some complex part songs. I have a Junior Choir (Y3-6) and a Senior Choir (Y7-10) and plan on using this book with both.
