        Lovely arrangements, only used Over the Rainbow so far but my choir loves it. Fairly easy to learn but doesn't sound too basic.

        Very prompt service and delivery. The musical arrangements and format are clear and straightforward with intermediate accompaniment. Suitable for purpose of duet singing or small group. Pleased with my purchase.

        I love Eva Cassidy's version of this classic song - Autumn Leaves, the only one we have looked at from this selection. However, this is just not quite the same! The rhythmic patterns are quite difficult for a choir to sing unanimously, but we are persevering. The harmony is great though, and the fairly easy piano accompaniment is very reminiscent of Eva's own guitar.

        I've only sung the first song from this book, but it's a nice selection of songs. It is well presented and easy to follow.

        Really lovely version of Somewhere over the rainbow, suitable for SSA choirs.

        Our choir has tried two of the three songs so far and we like them. For some of us it was a shock to hear the Eva Cassidy arrangements (especially of 'Over the Rainbow' which has been on television so much recently in its earlier version)but we like them. She has a distinctive style which is very pleasing.

        Have sung Over the Rainbow with my 70 strong choir to great reviews from our audience. I love this version of Over the Rainbow, it's so much nicer than the original. Easy to learn.
