The composer writes: The main tune, by the 14th century composer & poet Guilliaume de Machaut, had been buzzing around my head for ages & I’d always wanted to re present it in some form or other as it’s so attractive. I started arranging & this is what I ended up with. 6 minutes of patchwork A B A form for a healthy intermediate string group which might also benefit from the modest addition of some gentle ad lib percussion ? The piece also alludes to some other sources, one of which will be most familiar to the performers . The title is a confusion best not dwelt upon ,but I ended up enjoying the alliteration ,so retained it.

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.
