Searching for a specific piano book.
January 21, 2014 2:27 PM Subscribe
When I was younger, my family had a particular book of songs for the piano. They were popular songs and the difficulty was probably intermediate or thereabouts. Among the songs in this book were Chim Chim Cheree and a Spoonful of Sugar from Mary Poppins, as well as Greensleeves. The book fell apart (literally -- the glue unbound, pages fell out, etc) years ago and my family eventually got rid of it. I would love to find a copy of this book again, but I don't remember what it was called...

So I don't have a name for the book, nor for the editor, nor any names of anyone who arranged the music. All I remember is that there was a delightful arrangement of Greensleeves (and the two Mary Poppins songs). I seem to recall the book was very, very thick and it may have had a number like "500" in the title, like 500 piano songs or something like that. The cover, if I'm remembering right, was a shade like maroon and (I could be reaching here) I think the lettering on the cover was gold. Posting here in the hopes of finding the book in question!
The reason I'm searching for the book is primarily for that particular arrangement of Greensleeves. I taught myself to play it when I was a kid and I still know how to play it with my right hand, but my left hand seems to have forgotten chunks, over the years. I can absolutely tell you what notes the right-hand plays throughout the entire song, so if there's a method of searching sheet music for a particular arrangement, that could work, too. (Is there? If not, there ought to be.)
