An arrangement of the British National Anthem arranged for Recorder Consort.

The national anthem of the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland,’’God Save the Queen’’ or ’’God Save the King’’, has its origins in the 17th Century. The authorship of the words and the melody is not certain:the names of possible authors include the English director of music, John Bull(1563-1628), and the English poet and composer, Henry Carey(1687-1743). The anthem was first performed on the 28th of September 1745 at theatres in Drury Lane and Covent Garden, after the army of King George the Second had been defeated by Prince Charles Edward Stuart at Prestonpans, near Edinburgh. Over 140 composers, including Beethoven, Haydn and Brahms, have incorporated this tune in their compositions.

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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
