100 Years Of Popular Music chronicles the greatest music of the last century.
This book contains more than 70 songs from the 1940s arranged for Piano, Voice and Guitar, providing a fascinating insight into the music of the era. A listing of new inventions first seen during the 1940s is also included.
This is the fourth music book of "100 Years of Popular Music" series that I have bought.
As with my first three books,this one is full of all the memorable songs of it's period. Any one looking to buy a music book of songs from this era, must secure this treasure. I'm sure that nobody will be disappointed.

This was just what I wanted. The selection is of popular music with which most people who were around in the 40s will be familiar. The piano parts recall the mood of the music accurately but are not over-complex and any competent player should be able to play them.
I already have similar books of 30s music and 50s music which I use for light concerts in my local area, but I was missing the 40s music, which is now most appropriate for the members of the local day centres and sheltered housing.
I now have plenty of music between them to put together a range of varied concerts. Anonymous

An excellent anthology. It really helped in developing a 6 hour stint, for a help4heroes/VE day event. Anonymous
