Vocal Score part from The Pied Piper of Hamelin (Orchestral Version)

28 minutes
Modern classical music

This setting of Robert Browning’s "The Pied Piper of Hamelin" was written originally in 1968 as the result of a commission from the Farnham Festival and was first performed there in 1969. It was scored for Female Voices, Piano Duet, Timpani and three Percussionists. This orchestral version uses the same forces with the addition of flute, oboe, clarinet, two trumpets and strings.

There is an extended solo for solo soprano at the end which is usually sung by a member of the chorus.

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.
