Home > Choir + keyboard > In Flanders Fields (for TTBB chorus & piano)

This is a setting of the well-known John McCrae poem for male voice chorus and piano. Both this and the separate, mixed-voice setting come from the larger work "Sacrifices" (available on this website). This setting won the first prize in the Cornwall International Male Voice Chorus Festival composition competition, September 2012. Alwyn Humphreys, the adjudicator, wrote the following about this song: -

"……a setting of the famous John McCrae poem, IN FLANDERS FIELDS. This is atmospheric music which conveys very beautifully and sensitively the scene of the rows and rows of soldiers’ graves, the crosses and the poppies, and the larks singing above. The words are lovingly set and there is a sincerity about this music that elevates it to the realms of art. There’s no need to say more. It’s a lovely piece of music and it is the very worthy winner of the competition."

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.
