            WARRINGTON GB I enjoy choral singing.
            Good Quality, with clear print.
            It is a little on the heavy side, but how you can reduce the weight of such a large score is difficult.

            It’s “Messiah”!
            In spite of being bigger and heavier than the previous Watkins Shaw edition, the typeface is smaller! Words and music are really difficult to read, and the minims can look like crotchets for goodness sake. How can that be? Who decides this sort of thing? Didn’t they consider how difficult this might be for singers or accompanists to use for rehearsal or performance especially in venues such as halls and churches when lighting is often less than ideal? I know this came out many years ago but can the publisher please consider reprinting the original edition or producing a practical vocal score designed for performance?

            an easy to read, concise version of the messiah. The orchestral reduction is good and easier to play than others that are out there. Worth investing in as it seems to be quite popular for amateur groups.

            You came recommended by the MD of my local choir. He said you were quick, efficient and competitive. Do you know what? - he was right!!
