CAROLS FOR AUDIENCE AND ORCHESTRA Many orchestras, both amateur and professional, have Christmas concerts in which they encourage the audience to sing-a-long some carols, so here’s the very thing! Arrangements that give the orchestra something different to play than a straight forward ’hymn-book’ harmonization. These are quite easy and will need little rehearsal.

The conductor, or MC, should tell the audience that there is an introduction at the beginning and before the last verse, where there is also a change of key to look out for. For the conductor - there is an optional cut of one verse which is marked in the parts

All these ’Carols for Audience’ have been played by the Kent Concert Orchestra at their yearly Christmas Concerts in the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury and now by various orchestras all over the world due to the wonder of Sibelius.

Scoring: 2,2,2,2: 4,2,3,1: Timps. Snare and Bass Drums, Suspended Cymbal; Harp(optional); and Strings.

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. 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.
