 very nice Christmas CD--- lovely arrangements December 18, 2012 By G. Forman See All My Reviews "What a pleasure to listen to! These are delightful arrangements for string quartet. I was so pleased that I contacted Kermit Poling (arranger and performer) by email to ask if he might sell the arrangements, and -- good news -- he does. Email, paypal, PDFs--- it was easy. If your string quartet wants to get these scores, just google him up and ask him about it. Perhaps someday he'll also sell it online as a product, but we don't have to wait.
