Great for Karaoke
I wanted to sing Josh Groban songs for a friend, so I bought the book. Unfortunately they are too high for me - he bills himself as a baritone, but he must be a 2nd tenor to be able to sing these arrangements. And I am a bass. Nevertheless, the arrangements are just like what is on the record. So I have been able to play along on my flute. Next, I bought a karaoke CD of the same songs, which also matches the book. So I was able to perform these songs for my friends after all. They are great arrangements, and exactly match the Josh Groban CD of the same name.

Not appropriate for beginner pianists
I just wanted a particular song from this book and it turned out to be in 5 flats and no words so I was disappointed. It was just too difficult to play.

A piece unlike an other
It sounds beautiful, I can play it for hours, and never get tired of it. It is also has wonderful solos for a tenor and many of them can impress many audiences. Again, it is one of my favorite combinations of music, and I highly recommend it!

It is great music, just as Groban's sound is.

Any Josh Groban fan would absolutely love this songook. The musicality of Hymne A L'Amour alone is worth the price of this book. Mi Mancherai is another piece that translates beautifully even if you're just playing the piece and not singing along to it. Not boringly easy though not particularly very hard, the pieces are perfect for the casual instrument player and loyal Josh Groban fan.
