Internat. Book of Christmas Carols
Its a wonderful and so useful book with chord names on top.(for voice, harp, guitar, recorders, cello etc and piano) I own it since 20 years and as mine is falling apart, I need a 2nd one. It's for all levels.

Wonderful set of carols
I have one of the original, spiral-bound copies of this book and I love it. One of my graduating seniors requested it as her qraduation gift and my only regret is that it is no longer spiral-bound. It will not last as long as mine has unless you have your copy bound after you buy it.

Many hard to find beautiful carols
This book has many carols that are not often heard in the US, as well as many that are familiar. I've had the book for many years and only regret that it wasn't available while my German mother was still alive. She would have loved hearing me play some of her favorites that I've found nowhere else. A fine addition to a Christmas library.

Good but not what I expected
I bought this book to get a particular song, Tu Scendi Dalle Stelle, and the tune was completely different from the traditional tune. I was very disappointed and almost returned the book, but decided to give it to my father (who has a music therapy band) as a gift, instead. We have really been enjoying playing the English carols on piano and guitar -- however, some singers have complained that they are all set too high. Very nice book in general, though!

Thanks for having a copy available
I was looking for this collection based on the recommendation of my church's music director. [...]
