      GB No thank you.
      A good selection of pieces - some quite challenging. The inclusion of the CD is an excellent idea too.

      Lovely collection of popular classical favourites, with the addition of a CD of the contents.
      The title of Faure's work is incorrect. It should be Romance without words. On the back cover it is entitled Song without words by Mendellsohn!
