  • December 24, 2011 enjoyable and easy

    I like this one as much as the Carols for Two book. We used selections from these the last two years for Candlelight service. I did add some harmony, as for my taste there was too much doubling of parts and unison, but very nice otherwise. Really like the accompaniment...

    track.

  • November 22, 2011 Great Duets

    I am a vocal teacher so I thought I would buy this book for a duet recital. Here is what I liked and what I didn't like. 1. Great variety of levels in the book that made it perfect for my siutation. Beginning to advanced. 2. Fun arrangements. 3...

    . Great variety of types of music but pretty traditional in tone and writing style which I thought was perfect. I didn't want a pop book. 4. The minus tracks are professionally done. When I chose the songs I liked I tried to buy the choral arrangements for four songs from the same publisher. The 2 part arrangements that you buy separately didn't match so I had to make different arrangements.

  • December 14, 2008 Loved all the duets!

    I loved this group of songs. The vocal parts were interesting. We just performed 3 of them with piano and flute and they were great. Everyone said they liked the variety. A must have!
