In addition to bearing the venerable Reader's Digest name, this collection has a great selection of songs which make it one of the best patriotic/Americana PV collections available today! The third book in the new Reader's Digest Piano Library series, and the first to include piano/vocal arrangements, "A Nation of Heroes" features two audio CDs of forty recordings by the National Philharmonic, the London Promenade Orchestra, the Fireside Singers, the U.S. Navy Band, the Royal Marine Band, the National Honor Band and Orchestra, the Spirit of Freedom singers, and many other groups from the Reader's Digest archives. Each of the forty pieces also appears in the book in fresh, new intermediate piano and piano/vocal arrangements. Many pieces include chord names, and guitar chord charts are shown in a special index. A foreword also gives the interesting history behind each song.

    While I like all the selections, I was expecting the music to be "Advanced". This is good for an intermediate, but not what I was looking for. The CD's are wonderful, though.
