This is part of a series of small pieces of chamber music being written for home use. This is based on the famous Lincolnshire folk song Brigg Fair, as collected, (and recorded, the recording is still in the catalogue), by Percy Grainger from Joseph Taylor back in the 1900s.

Treble and tenor recoders make an attractive combination over the more usual two trebles. The Tenor recoder requires the low C-sharp but that can be fudged with an E if the recoder lacks the double hole. The speed is of course set by what you think the speed of the original song is. Dynamics are up to the performers. Recorders do not have a wide range of dynamics but what is possible depends quite a bit on the acoustics of the room as well as the recorders. Good luck with your own dynamics and expression…….

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. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been 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.
