          As in a large collection like this, there will be some less appropriate for the situation - i.e. church use/secular groups
          but overall the book is worth it.

          Some straight forward and useful arrangements
          Not in the same league as some other Voiceworks I have used. New songs aren't great and more traditional ones have many better arrangements available. Would benefit from more simple parts which build into harmony.

          My school choir can manage SAB and simple SATB, and this gave me a wealth of material to work with. A brilliant book.

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