The included photos are of extremely high quality.

Even if you don't play piano it's a ton of fun just singing along to the CD.

The song is in the key of C,E and Db (very 'Wicked' like accompaniment.)

This book is amazing!! it contains all the songs from the show and is very detailed in the score. The arrangement of the piano accompaniment is the exact same thing like what you hear in the recording. There's no melody in the piano part, so it's not for piano solo. Every single notes/spoken lines of every chorus voices of every song is included.

The first 8 pages are beautiful colored photos from each of the songs in the show.
"Hello" - great arrangement for piano and quite simple to play, at the beginning of the song where there isn't an accompaniment, they have the melody in the piano (all the door bells sound are included). There are also the names of every Elder that sing this song, telling us who sing each part/line, very awesome. Starting in the key of C and modulate to Db key half way to the end.

"Two by Two" - a fun song to play, all the Elder's names, spoken lines, and 'clap' signs are included. The song is in the key of Bb, Eb, Db, Eb again, Ab and ends on E.

"You and Me (But Mostly Me)" - powerful ballad/bright rock, the piano accompaniment is amazing! The song is in the key of C,E and Db (very 'Wicked' like accompaniment.)

"Hasa Diga Eebowai" - all the chorus voice-parts are included in details (men and woman chorus part is separated). The song is in the key of F# (don't be discouraged by many sharps, the accompaniment part is quite simple) and ends in G.

"Turn It Off" - quite challenging to play during the tap dance part of the song. All the Elder's names are included. There is also a notation for the woodblock. The song switched around between F and Gb keys.

"I am Here For You" - Very easy lullaby type song in the key of A.

Several notable things about this vocal selections book that sets it apart from most:

1) It includes ALL the songs found on the cast album. Yes it makes for a larger, more expensive book, but I'd much rather pay extra for a more complete book than have someone else decide what the most popular songs are.

2) The piano part is a real accompaniment, so you have the choice of accompanying a singer or adding a piano melody on your own for a solo performance.

3) The arrangements are exactly the same as what's on the cast album. I haven't seen the show so I don't know if any cuts were made from the full score to create the cast recording, but usually that's inevitable unless it's a multi-CD set. Since this book matches the recording, it makes it easier to prepare a song for an audition or cabaret performance. I didn't check every song, but for the most part I believe they're also in the same keys. (As someone who has played numerous auditions, I've seen my share of singers who have only sung with a CD and never a live piano, and are surprised that the sheet music is 2 steps higher or lower than what they're familiar with.)

3a) And yes, we really do want all those dance breaks and interludes from the cast recording in there, Mr. or Ms. Editor Person, so thank you. We can always make cuts on our own if necessary.

All of these things, by the way, vastly reduce the incentive and desire to seek out bootleg photocopies and poorly-scanned PDFs of Broadway scores. Often it's not people wanting to put on unauthorized productions of shows, but simply wanting a copy of the sheet music that matches what they're used to hearing on the cast album. Good on Alfred Publishing for making this editorial decision -- other publishers should do the same!

This book is a must-have for anyone who is a fan of "The Book of Morman". It has all of the songs. The arrangements are not terribly difficult. The arrangements are written as accompaniment and as such are not suitable for a solo pianist. Even if you don't play piano it's a ton of fun just singing along to the CD. Well worth the price!

First the good. The songs are pretty accurate, though not for solo piano. This is unfortunate, but not unexpected. That said, I'm having a blast playing all my BoMM favorites, driving my wife nuts, "I am Africaaa!"

Now the bad, it's a paper book with a glued spine. I really hate when they do this. Spiral bound these please! Unless you photocopy the pages it's pretty much worthless as you have to hold the book open with a chip clip and with three staves a page, you'll never be able to flip through them easily and you'll ruin the book trying.

I'd like to give it a higher rating for the music, but not being able to use the book without copying and printing is pretty frustrating. So, I'll only give it three stars. That said, I belieeeeeeve that one day manufactures will make their piano books that are spiral bound!
