    I needed to create a MIDI file of one of the songs in this book for my granddaughters to sing together and with grandpa's occasional melody line on the clarinet, but with continuing synthesized piano accompaniment throughout. The offering is excellent as are the presentations of the other songs...

    some of which I'm certain will be used in the future for family musicales.
