        The teaching points and suggestions are very good. Although the songs are not all suitable for my small choir, I can use a sufficient number of them to make it a practical purchase
        Some of the pieces are not what I would choose to perform.

        Brilliant ideas to plan how to teach teach the song.
        Far too many songs that feature religion. I do not run a church choir and I cannot use any of those songs. I realise that it is a gospel book too, but it seems that this aspect features too much. A lot of money for just a few songs I can use.

        Good arrangements but realistically could only use a few of these with typical school vocal groups.

        Wide variety of songs, but few were suitable for a choir of middle aged ladies. Quite expensive for the two or three songs I could use.
