From Wikipedia:

"Santa Lucia is a traditional Neapolitan song. It was transcribed by Teodoro Cottrau (1827 - 1879) and published by the Cottrau firm, as a "barcarolla", at Naples in 1849. Cottrau translated it from Napuletano into Italian during the first stage of the Risorgimento, the first Neapolitan song to be given Italian lyrics. Its transcriber, who is very often credited as its composer, was the son of the French-born Italian composer and collector of songs Guillaume Louis Cottrau (1797 - 1847)."

Famous singers who have recorded this in English and Italian over the years include Enrico Caruso, Elvis Presley and of course the great Deano!

This version is nearer to the Barcarolle idea. I wanted to make it pretty and so it includes a lot of Neapolitan style thirds and sixths in the flutes. The flute parts are harder than the guitar which is probably only about grade 2.

For any teachers who are shy of guitars, I have transcribed the guitar part at concert pitch for piano, it should be easy enough to play and will give good practice in reading leger lines. I could have elaborated it into something harder and more pianistic, but I wanted to keep the alberti bass feel of the classical guitar part!

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

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

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.
