Second Tombone (Rule Britannia) part from Rule Britannia! (When Britain first at heav'n's command) for Brass Band

Ahh yes, just what the word needs right now to cure its woe's, yet another brass band arrangement of "Rule, Britannia! (When Britain first at heav'ns command. (A grand ode in honour of Great Britain). You know, if I was going to composer a patriotic song or theme or anthem for my country, this would be it! I mean, this is a GREAT PIECE!, as anthems go: this literally RULES!. So, here it is, my humble attempt and my very first arrangement for brass band. And I chose this wonderful work composed by Thomas Arne for Alfred, a 1740 masque about Alfred the Great, written by David Mallet and James Thomson to commemorate the accession of George I and the birthday of the Princess Augusta. I actually went to the Juilliard Library and found the original source for the Masque of Alfred and made this arrangement based on that score, so I tried to retain some "authenticity" and be true to the original as much as possible. That said, I took some liberties here and there and I hope this doesn't annoy anyone too much. Cheers! By the way, [I do believe this is the Enigma in Elgar's Variations!!]

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.
