    The title is deceiving - the arrangements are more suited for a solid intermediate level ability. Range is never above G, keys are simple and tempos are moderate. There are a few pieces requiring lip slurs in thirds or fifths, but nothing outrageous. As other reviews have noted, the arrangements can...

    be difficult to follow as they are mostly strings without a well defined beat. Most tempos are fairly well set in the piece so your best bet is to get your foot tapping in time during the intro. and try to religiously follow it. It would have been helpful to add the 'demo' tracks for each piece.

    The trumpet parts are fun to play but not having the option of listening to what the carols with the solo part sound like or having an accompaniment score makes it frustrating to play.

  • 2017-11-23 14:13:30.0 Arrangements are OK, BUT.....

    The main problem here is there is no piano accompaniment! The CD has backing tracks only; you can't listen to the solo and accomp. to see what the whole thing sounds like. That being said, the accomp. tracks are nicely recorded orchestral arrangements which may be fun to play...

    with at home. But when it comes down to the nitty gritty and you are looking for something to play in church, using a CD player or sound system may be frowned upon, as it was in my case...banned. I wouldn't call this "advanced", either. A better choice would be the Curnow "Great Carols", which I have used for years. It has a piano part as well as CD, and the arrangements are great.
