Alexander L'Estrange's arrangements in the Faber choral basics series... are, to combine political cliche and advertising slogan, entirely fit for purpose and do exactly what they say on the tin. The choral basics series is aimed at beginner choirs, with popular songs arranged in two or three parts, with effective and non-fussy piano accompaniments. [This volume] is pitched exactly right for that market: the vocal writing has enough contrast of unison, two-part and three-part textures, with occasional solos, and will work well for schools, youth choirs and adult singing groups.
