Polly explains to her angry parents why she has married the Highwayman MacHeath.

The original melody used for this air was entitled "Grim King of the Ghosts", which is perhaps why I ended up giving it this slightly eerie muted-string accompaniment.

Sections of the bass part could be played an octave higher ad lib if the player's technique and intonation are up to it; alternatively it could be given to one of the bassoons or to a cello if one is substituting for a cello.

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.
