Format: Sheet music
I agree wholeheartedly with the previous reviewer. The piano arrangments for Woman, If I Said I Loved You, and I'll Be There were particularly outstanding. I'll Be There is tricky to arrange for piano, with all the 16ths (much like Where in the World from Secret Garden), but this is surprisingly easy to play, considering how much of the orchestra is included in the piano part here.

The music is just a bit more difficult than some other books (like the Les Misearbles vocal score, for instance) -- but this is an advantage. It's similar to the Martin Guerre books in difficulty. It's easier to read though -- I like the typesetting here better than in the Martin Guerre books; I think it's done with Sibelius this time.

Notably lacking from the book is the father-daughter duet My Grace, the two woman duet She Who Has All (I was certain this would be included -- sort of a shock to see it missing!), the important plot-piece The Choice is Mine, the tenor solo Surrender, and the Finale. In a follow-on book, I would very much appreciate seeing music to the orchestral Entr'acte (by far the most exciting music in the show), the Prologue, and the climactic Woman to Woman. Additionally, the music for the cut song The Woman That I Am would be great to see in sheet music form -- it might make a great audition piece and it's sad it got cut for the Broadway version.

One other comment -- Here on this Night used to be my favorite piece in the show, but there's something about this piano arrangment that makes it feel impersonal and lacking in passion compared with the recording. Likewise, it seemed more emotional in its Chicago version than on the Broadway recording. A piano arrangement of the original might be nice to see in the future.

All caveats aside, this is a great book and I highly recommend it to Les Miz/Miss Saigon/Martin Guerre fans. I bought three copies when it was released and sent two away as gifts immediately. Beautiful music!

Format: Sheet music
I love this musical; it's my favorite. The music and lyrics are genius. The songbook includes key songs for either a man or woman soloist that show off strength and passion ("Woman" and "I'll be There"). It includes beautiful love duets ("Here on This Night" and "If I said I Loved You") as well as strong, angry duet ("I Dismiss You"), all three for a man and woman. There are, in the song book, a few chorus numbers, but what this book left out is, the other 10 fantastic numbers. For example, "Woman to Woman" and "She Who Has All" are mesmerizing duets between two women and the loving father-daughter song titled "My Grace" have been left out. I understand leaving out a few of the songs which have fight scenes at the end and don't conclude properly, but the song "Surrender," another powerful male solo, shouldn't have been cut. I hope that a second book will come out with all of the songs available. Despite the missing songs, I'm thrilled that this book is out and the few songs that they have are available. If you're a fan of Les Miserables and Miss Saigon, this musical is for you.

It's missing a couple songs I wish it had, but overall, very good - the arrangements are substantial, but not real difficult to play. The arrangements accurately reflect the soundtrack.

This is not clearly identified as the musical score of the play. It is only identified as a paperback. I returned this item.
