Composer

Duration
1 minute
Genre
Classical music

Here we meet Peachum's wife, who has overheard him planning to "black-list" one of his less efficient thieves who is also a friend of hers; however, she contents herself with thinking how handsome he will look on his way to the gallows!

In this number the oboe player and the guitar player are having a rest; the recorder players, who have brought an entire case-full with them, are adding a gentle coo to a rather biting arrangement by using tenors.

The original of this tune is a popular song, reputed to be a favourite of Elizabeth I, called "Cold and Raw"

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.
