The feel of this book is a collection of orchestrated carols - quite a few are 'medleys', and there is at least one suite. For beginners, it's a great way to introduce them to this genre. Easy - my grade 2 daughter could do most of it. There's a bit of 3rd position. It's a well put-together collection, but not really for singing - for that, I'd recommend Carols for Starters, duets arranged by William McConnell.
