Euphonium part from Elegy (version for Euphonium / Baritone)

3 minutes
Classical music

Occasionally composers have made more than one use out of a particular tune during their lifetime, often in a different guise. New Tomorrows was a song I originally wrote back in 1974, but the melody has often suggested an alternative instrumental treatment.

Whilst the original was for soprano, I firstly felt that the singing quality of the cello would be ideally suited, and the wider range gave me some opportunities to embellish the original setting somewhat. Whilst not intended to copy Faure’s similarly-named work for the instrument, I just thought that Elegy was a fitting title for this essentially ’sad’ melody in the minor key.

This alternative version for Euphonium/Baritone originally appeared under another publisher, where it was described as ’a must for any euphonium soloist’.

Duettino is a reworking for Flute and Piano, where some of the melodic decoration has recently been re-scored, to add a slightly jazzier, almost-improvised feel to parts of it.

The other versions are still available at Score Exchange as is, of course, the song itself.

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.
