    I perform piano solo arrangements of Christmas songs whenever I get a chance during the holidays, and this is the best all-around collection I've found in 72 yrs of playing! It has both classic & contemporary, something to please everyone. And LOTS of them! I did take it to...

    an office supply store and have it spiral bound for easier page turning, which would be my suggestion to the publisher, and the pages don't stay open on their own.

    Good arrangements but fast progressions and runs require some expertise.

    Bought this for me wife, she thought this was just more Christmas music and she had plenty. But as she began playing them she has fallen in love with many of the arrangements in this book.

    This was exactly what I was looking for: solid Christmas arrangements that have some challenge but are easy enough to sight-read for an advanced pianist. Serves well as something I can pull out each holiday season and play a variety of classics without having to put a lot of...

    time in learning arrangements.

    I wish I had read the reviews of this book before buying it. Most arrangements are two pages, and the ones that are longer are lazy. Often times he just does the same thing in another octave. Most of them are not hard and most of them are not interesting...

    . I have a few of his other books and they're great - they are difficult yet beautiful so this was a disappointment.
