Customer Reviews for The Secret Garden - Vocal Selections
June 28, 2009
Melodies are carried by singer, not piano
This book is like the orchestrations, so the piano does NOT play the melody in most cases. Lily's Eyes and Secret Garden both are arranged such that if you don't have someone singing, the melody line is practically non-existent in the piano part. I use this version for accompaniment of singers, but for just playing without a singer I am seeking another version.

Book is beautiful, only complaint I have is that books of music are now stapled in the middle instead of the old binding style and that makes them difficult to open for playing from.

Finally, the public is given a vocal selection book where the piano arrangements resemble the orchestrations from the Broadway production. The music is beautiful on its own, but to have such wonderful accompaniments underneath beautiful vocal lines is a real treat.

"It can no longer be kept a seceret!"
Tis song book was very helpful for me with auditions. The musical has amazing songs and for a wide range of voices.
