  • December 07, 2012 Wonderful arrangements!

    Our women's sextet has worked up more than half of the carols in this book, and the arrangements are lovely. I highly recommend this for good music readers -- quite a lot of skill is required for David Willcocks' arrangements, but the results are beautiful. I am so grateful to...

    Willcocks and John Rutter for providing all these settings! Some arrangements would work for lesser-skilled choirs. It's a great resource. I speak as a music teacher who sings a lot. Also, Sheet Music Plus shipped them immediately, and we received them just a few days after ordering. Thank you, SMP!
