cornet 2 part from Grandfather’s Clock

Louis Castle
5 minutes
Modern classical music

The composition was published in 1916 by Walter Jacobs. Filled with clock sounds of ticking and chiming and key winding, the music brings to mind nostalgic imagery of Grandfather�s Clock. This piece is unrelated to the popular children�s song. I wish to thank Brendan Elliget for his precious contribution to the arrangement. Check out his tunes in sibelius…he is great !! This is my arrangement for military band of this forgotten jolly tune!!

Note for the Conductor:

Please respect expression signs, a f should be considered as a mf for brass and f for woodwinds. Cornets should be preferred to trumpets and Eb horns to F horns. A good piccolo player and/or piccolo clarinet player is needed as well as good percussionist. Please try to recreate the sounds of an old mechanic clock using the percussions as indicated in the score. Please drop me an email ( if you decide to perform this for further note. Cheers

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.
