4. Horn in F "Coranto Battle" part from Coranto "Battle"

John Bull

Classical music

Simply put, I love the music of John Bull (?1562/3-1628), the English composer, organist, virginalist and organ builder, one of the leading keyboard virtuosos of his time and an important composer of keyboard music. In the late 1970s I purchased a recording of the London Festival Brass Ensemble with Elgar Howarth and Alan Civil as the conductors which included three amazing arrangements by Howarth of Bull?s keyboard works the Pavan St. Thomas Wake and Variation, Galliard and 4 Variations and The King's Hunting Jig. Soon after I discovered Howarth's mind-blowing arrangements and recordings of William Byrd's Earl of Oxford's March and Battle Suite (with the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble), in my estimation, the greatest arrangements of Renaissance Brass Ensemble music ever produced. I hereby offer, with much humility (and deference to Mr., Howarth), an arrangement of a short keyboard work for brass sextet. It is a delightful work and will be fun brass groups to work on and present as an opener at any concert situation.

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.
