    I've been playing piano for 60++ years and these are some of The. Best. Arrangements. Ever!!! "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "I'll be Home for Christmas" are particularly lovely with a jazzy feel. Pieces are difficult enough to enjoy playing, but not requiring hours of practice...

    . Mark Hayes is a superb arranger. Highly recommend this collection.

    Mark Hayes is one of the few arrangers that I purchase sight unseen. This book, though, is a disappointment because almost all the numbers have large chords in them. If you can't easily reach a ninth, especially with additional notes in the chord, you will want to bypass this...

    collection.

    This collection of holiday tunes is for the advanced pianist. Modulating keys, arpeggios and big chords make for enjoyable listening. It's worth practicing to bring out the full potential of each selection.

    Really lovely arrangements. I found some a little difficult to begin with but well worth the time spent practicing for the end result.

    I really liked this collection because the pieces were not only well written, but offered some songs that are not seen in other piano books.
