Review quote

OUP goes from strength to strength with its Choral Classics catalogue. With a huge repertoire, ranging from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries from which to choose, Clifford Bartlett has clearly spent a great deal of time and effort, not only in selecting what to include, but also what to exclude . . . All of this in one volume, bound and presented in the excellent format which we have come to know and expect from OUP. What more can I say, except "More please".
Very highly recommended. * Henry Howell, Australian Music Teacher, September 2003 *
