A very versatile collection of music to suit organ or piano and suitable for my ability coupled with my degree of nervousness when I'm asked to play at a wedding!! Its also easy to see and read which in a church is very important. I would like to see music ring bound so that it stays open while playing. It seems sacrilegious to break the spine of the book to get it to stay open!

I was asked to play at a friend's wedding. She wanted the Hornpipe from Handel's Water Music Suite. It was hard to find, but this arrangement is quite good for my abilities and there are other nicely arranged classical pieces that I'll enjoy in the future.

most of the pieces have been simplified especially for the left hand. the feeling of the piece is there but not the fullness.

Vocal and Piano Selections for a Wedding
Did not want the vocal selections in this book. I felt that I was "forced" to purchase vocal music that I did not want or need. Overall I was not happy with this purchase, but bought the book because of one selection that I needed.

Good selection, simplified music
I was really excited when I picked up this book and glanced through it. It's a great summary of the "classic" wedding pieces, but the piano arrangements for much of the music left me a little flat. The book didn't say it was for easy piano, and the vocal pieces (2 Ave Marias in particular) are exactly as they are in the original. The rest of the music is very simple, short arrangements of orchestral works. Again, a good group of pieces, but be warned: the reductions are REDUCED.
