  • February 13, 2012 great book

    This book is a fun take on Christmas carols. At Christmas time you often hear the same songs over and over again, but this makes the carols new. I'm still playing them and it's February.

  • September 26, 2008 Beautiful Arrangements

    I love how Ms. Taylor has mixed timeless classical songs with traditional carols. Beware: not all of the classical songs are in their original key. Most suitable for late intermediate to early advanced.I hope you like this collection as much as I did!
