      Isle of Wight GB
      Good variety of pieces, including some I had not seen before. Spiral binding avoided damaging spine

      Good popular classic melodies which I bought for a friend who doesn't use pedals but is a keen player.

      Shrewsbury Shropshire GB Part time organist, retired,
      I had a similar book to this from KM but sadly lost it, but this "replacement" is much better and more user friendly.
      The ring binder allows you to turn pages without the pages springing back and without breaking the spine (allowing pages to come loose)
      I think that the print is also clearer(I think!)
      The pieces included are all well known classics but nicely arranged to allow the average organist to play for voluntaries and also for anyone to play for enjoyment at home.
      I'm a happy average organist!
