  • October 06, 2008 Good content, bad binding replaced

    Good selections arranged for the organ. The binding was bad, with pages falling out in a few weeks of use, but Alfred Publishers replaced the defective book with one that looks fine. My thanks to their customer service. Raised from three stars to four

  • August 23, 2007 This book is OK

    I do own this book, and it has several nice pieces, but in my opinion you can find better arrangements of these pieces in other compilations.

  • October 08, 2003 A sure-fire winner of classic literature

    Contains a wonderful collection of church and concert repertoire that comes together fairly quickly. The young organist will enjoy the challenges while the mature performer will appreciate having the quality literature available for all occasions. Robert E. Rushton, B.
