Voice part from NO MYST’RY WHY I NEED YOU (after Couperin’s Les Baricades Mistérieuses) for Voice and Piano

3 minutes
Rock and Pop Music

This little song incorporates Francoin Couperin’s Les Baricades Mist�riuses, originally published for solo harpsichord in 1717. Some purists may take exception to my use of this beautiful piece, but then they probably aren’t composers. Anyway, this playful setting will work quite well as wedding or other occasional music. In fact, the underlying harpsichord piece can be used as a prelude! Feel free to double the voice with a flute or other melody instrument, and the bass line with whatever is available, to fill out the band, just as it was done in the 18th century!

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.
