I found this gem of Victoriana amongst some old piano sheet music I collected. The original has no date, but I found out that John Pridham was a Devon schoolmaster writing his music around 1858. I was drawn by the cover illustration, then I thought it sounded so happy and typical of the period that I just had to orchestrate it. I have added a few counter melodies to spice it up. There are melodic parts for most instruments. The orchestration is suitable for a small orchestra of intermediate to advanced level, most parts should not intimidate a youth or amateur orchestral musician, but if there are too manic moments near the end (eg for trumpet or violin) they can be easily simplified. If you purchase feel free to copy individual parts for own use only. Amateurs are welcome to perform obviously if they purchase the score, but I would like a copy of any recording. Professionals please contact PRS for Music!


Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. Scorch generally works well if you're using a windows computer, but is currently not compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
