"I hope that this book will become a firm favourite for many people, whether they are pupils or teachers, as it has some rare qualities. It is a singing book that is full of variety, but not an uncomfortable mishmash, containing a balance in terms of ability and challenge, that will hopefully bring these unforgivably overlooked pieces to a fresh audience. More please!"

"I use this book constantly with students, particularly those in the 11 - 15 year age category. The selection of songs is varied and those that I have used seem to bring out the best in the young voices.
It is particularly lovely to have a collection like this available that has so many songs that are set both for ABRSM and Trinity College exams.
Highly recommended"
