  • January 13, 2011 slapped together

    these arrangements seem slapped together. for example, winter wonderland, which appears to be several pages long, is really only 2 pages long if you consider a) all the written out repeats, and b) the big variation in which renfrow put the first verse into octaves with everything otherwise identical including...

    the little fills which by the 3rd repetition start to really grate. all of the arrangements are similarly repetitive and unimaginative plus, this is not advanced, its intermediate which is another irritant. throwing in octaves doesnt make it advanced, it makes it a slapped together attempt to pretend something new is happening, when in fact nothing new is happening, other than of course, the octaves. boo hiss i give it two stars because the first page of every song is good, and then - nothing happens.

  • November 16, 2010 GREAT!

    I have been playing piano for 8 years. I play hymn style, some classical, and lots of arranged music. I was trying to find some Christmas music at a level challenging enough to be worthwhile, and this book turned out to be perfect. It has a nice balance of Christian...

    and secular songs, and the arranger did a great job' jazzing up' "Let it Snow".
