A must read . What a great way to learn the background of how important songs from the past were written both words and music other than The Star Spangled Banner as we all should know..

I highly recommend this book and also written by Ace are the back grounds of some Christmas music.

Great little book full of possible trivia questions and some very interesting stories. I think I will get the other books in this group to learn the stories behind other great songs.
