Over the years I have so far written a series of six recorder quartets in which I have attempted to treat the medium with the same degree of seriousness that one might accord, say, a string quartet. That is not to say that humour is entirely absent (I hope!), but they were not designed to be transparently obvious from the start and require some thought and effort by the performer to get the best out of them. I have tried to keep technical difficulties down to a minimum and they should be within the reach of most ’middle of the road’ recorder players. The third quartet has four movements, Allegretto, Adagio, Allegro and Andante. It was written in 1986 and revised in 1996.

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.
