Horn 1 in F part from Idyll: Blow the Wind Southerly: horn quintet

Composer
Duration
4 minutes
Genre
Classical music

An original composition for horn quintet (transcibed from my wind quintet composition) based on 2 Northumbrian traditional tunes: "Blow the Wind Southerly", and "When the boat comes in" The melody moves around the individual instruments, rather than the flute. I have tried to write this in the "English Pastoral Style" of George Butterworth and Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Blow the Wind Southerly tells the tale of a woman desperately hoping for a southerly wind to blow her lover back home over the ocean to her. Kathleen Ferrier recorded what is perhaps the best-known version of the song in London in 1949. "When the boat comes in" was popularised as the theme tune to the 1970s BBC drama serial "When The Boat Comes In "in an arrangement by the composer David Fanshawe.The series was set in North East England during the 20s/30s. It is also known as "Dance to your Daddy"

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.
