      Very accessible arrangements of some favourite pieces.
      Pieces referred to by the advertisement in which they were used. Some unnecessary deviation from the originals

      Une bonne transcription pour piano des pages les plus célèbres des requiem connus ....avec une mention spéciale pour "IN PARADISUM" de celui de Fauré et le LACRIMOSA de celui de Mozart. La sélection est interessante et constitue un agréable exercice de déchiffrage....pour pianites confirmés.

      This is exactly what I was looking for and it arrived the next day. The service is wonderful. I wouldn't buy music any other way now. It saves hours of browsing in shops or a visit to find out the shop hasn't got what I want and it has to be ordered, then a return visit made. This is the best way to buy.

      The book contains an excellent range of pieces, most being well known, which as a church organist I will find useful for funerals and memorial services. The pieces are well arranged and retain original harmonies. Although arranged for piano they easily adapt for organ or could be played exactly as written on keyboards only. A great addition to my collection.

      This book completely lives up to its name. It is made up of a great selection of pieces that range from Baroque(Handel etc) to Modern (Romeo & Juliet Balcony Scene); all of which are very moving and evoke emotion. The Intermediate marking is spot on - piano techniques are required, but there is definitely a good selection of pieces ranging from around grade 4 to grade 6 level. I thoroughly enjoy playing from this collection and would most definitely recommend it to other pianists.
