Horn in F part from Scarborough Fair for Brass quintet

3 minutes

Just my luck, half term, a week away from the funny farm and what happens I get the 'flu! All those jobs I was going to do and places I was going - forget it. So it's a good opportunity to do the arrangement thats been in my head for the last few months. Scarbough Fair, can't say I'm too fond on the tune, but I've tried to do some thing different here from the normal sugar and spice arrangements. I know some people will say that I've put it in to high playing level, but some of the rhythms in this are not easy to play together properly. Let me know what you think - constructive reviews please. If you perform or record can you let me know.

P.S. This is in answer to the 'review' of C. Lohse posted below. This piece has been purchased by several quintets and recorded on 2 occasions. Yes there were difficulties with the rhythms, but nothing that could not be sorted by competant muscians and judicious counting! He says that the figure for the trombone at the beginning is impossible, he obviously knows nothing of trombone playing. He states that I have never played trombone, I was a professional trombonist for many years, and know that any good trombonist can read in any clef!

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.
