5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Christmas Carols Book Dec 27 2000
Format:Paperback
I needed a book with popular Christmas songs so that when I had my party for Christmas and pre-Christmas so that everybody (a small gathering) could read and we could sing the carols that we know the tunes too. The problem was either they wouldn't get here by Christmas or they didn't exist so after searching I lost hope but the next time I logged on to Amazon.com I looked at my book reccommndations and there was at number one position a book on sale and it was a Christmas Carol book. I could not belive that such a book was so cheep and could be delivered but I had no other hope so I bout the neccissary copies (VERY CHEEP) and it got here on the 21st I looked in it and there was exactly what I was looking for and it was so cheep.
I definatley reccommend this book to anyone who wants to sing Christmas songs or has get togethers before or during Christmas becuase this definatly was a a very cheep lifesaver and I would have paid more and this bood has every song you could want and more. I give this book five stars out of five.

Admit it. Last year, two days before your Christmas caroling party, you spent four hours at the computer typing up all the verses to a dozen carols. Dover--the people who brought you an affordable version of Francis Child's Scottish Ballad collection--have come out with a cheap (seriously: eighty cents!), attractive little book with four or five verses to all the best-known carols. Even better, if you love Christmas music: in addition to "Away in a Manger" and "God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen" you'll be delighted to run into beautiful and less-widely-sung friends like "The Cherry Tree Carol," "Coventry Carol," "Masters in this Hall," and "Unto Us a Boy is Born." The catch? There isn't any. I bought twenty-five copies. I'll spend the time before my next Christmas party decorating the tree!

5.0 out of 5 stars ngeorgia loves this little book Oct. 17 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Fits all of my criteria for this type of book. It has the words, it is easy to read, it is cute and easy to hold. Oh, and the most important thing....it is inexpensive! The only thing missing from this little ditty are the musical notes (not that I could read them or hit them).
Shipping is a bit high for such a small and lightweight little gem so be sure to look at that part of your cart when you check out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for caroling Dec 2 2002
Format:Paperback
I bought 30 copies of this book several years ago and they are now a regular part of our Christmas holiday. They have carolled around many neighborhoods. Great for groups caroling or just singing around the piano. It has lyrics only (alas), but for the price, this little 64-page book can be indispensable if you're putting a group sing together.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Christmas source Nov. 29 2004
By E. A Solinas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Christmas carols are among the oldest of holiday traditions, stretching back centuries with songs about celebrations, Christ's birth, and cold snowy nights. Dover Thrift's "Christmas Carols: Complete Verses" is a solid resource for anyone who can't remember that second verse of "Angels We Have Heard On High."

Shane Weller collects many traditional Christmas carols, both secular ("Jingle Bells") and religious ("Joy To the World"). He includes old favorites like "The Twelve Days of Christmas," which is almost impossible to remember every verse of, the bouncy "We Wish You A Merry Christmas," and the solemn balladic "Silent Night."

However, Weller doesn't just stick to well-known favorites. He also dips into a large store of lesser-known carols such as "Good King Wenceslas" -- sure, people know the first first four or five lines, but what comes after that? Anyway, the lesser-known, richly traditional carols include the lullaby-like "Coventry Carol," the enchanting part-Latin "The Snow Lay on the Ground," and the enchanting "Wassail Song."

The real gems of this collection are, in fact, the much older traditional carols -- they can be just as catchy as the more recent ones ("Here we come a-wassailing/Among the leaves so green,/Here we come a wand'ring,/So fair to be seen"). And not all of the most recent ones as well known, such as Christina Rossetti's "In the Bleak Midwinter," a carol/poem she wrote for a newspaper.

While the book is of the cheap quality -- rather slimy paper and cover -- needed to keep the price affordable, a few flourishes are given to it, like cute little holly decorations over the songs. The songs are arranged alphabetically, which is either good or bad -- good for finding them quickly, bad for singing all in order.

"Christmas Carols: Complete Verses" is a surprisingly good selection of carols, old and new, well-known and obscure. What they all have in common is a rich holiday atmosphere. Definitely worth getting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy and fairly cheap Sept. 21 2013
By Allen Smalling - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Let's see: Is it "Nine Lords a-leaping, eight maids a-milking"? Or is it "Nine ladies dancing, eight swans a-swimming"? Every Christmas, if you go through this, it's time to declare a halt to the memory-and-Internet strain and buy a flock of these reasonably priced CHRISTMAS CAROL booklets from Dover Publications for school assemblies, caroling, and parties. Fifty-one carols spread over sixty pages (lyrics only, no musical notation) include all the favorites, as well as a few less known to Americans, such as "The Boar's Head Carol" and "The Wassail Song." I should note that traditional lyrics are used, so it's "Good Christian *Men* Rejoice" and the like, but that's a small hitch in the overall convenience of having a uniform booklet and the confidence it inspires. With Yuletide impending, perhaps it's time to buy one for your perusal, or go ahead and buy a bunch; then you and your fellow singers will be, quite literally, on the same page.
