What Others Have Said about This Collection:

"I agree with fidkid - Norbeck’s transcriptions are still the best. A reliable resource if you want to use sheet-music or abc-files for tunes to refer to."
"Cuairteoir"

"Though an inveterate learn-by-ear guy meself, I always recommend the Norbeck Collection and transcriptions for them that need the notes."
