2nd Horn Eb part from David of the White Rock by David Wheatley for Brass band

5 minutes
Folk music

This Fantasie on the Welsh tune ’David of the White rock’ was written for the Bendix (Bristol) Brass Band, and the first public performance was given by them in the presence of the composer. Snatches of the melody are heard until the theme proper appears at different pitches, leading into a fugal closing section. A great deal of flexiblity/rubato is needed in performance. The piece is effective, and contrasting, without being overly difficult. Why not listen to the mp3 file (digitally generated) which will give a general idea of the piece and the tempi. Band parts for this piece are priced very low - but you will definitely also need to purchase a score - enjoy!

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.
