Good for all stages Review by Fiona
Star Rating
Good for all stages - from novice to expert! (Posted on 21/10/2012)
Good music . . . but Review by MrOrganMan
Star Rating
This is an excellent book, the choice of pieces are superb. The print is clear and the music easy to read. However, the only problem is that due to the fact the book is so thick it flops closed unless you have clips to hold it open. However, I would still recommend this to all organists as the arrangements can be played without that much practice. (Posted on 08/02/2012)
