I first fell in love with this tune as a child listening to Vaughan Williams English Folksong Suite. Then as a young adult encountering Milder, Molder, Fessle, Fo and John the Red Nose I couldn’t resist using it with children. This is the quartet arrangement of something I used as a solo or song for years! Guitar 1 has the melody, with an easy guitar melody also, guitar 2 carries the bass, guitar 3 is a two part arrangement and guitar 4 has a running accompaniment that will get the p.i.m.a. working! Where are you going, said Milder to Molder? Where are you going, said Fessle to Fo? Off to Sibelius to hunt the Cutty Wren said John the Red Nose!

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.
