String quintet

A traditional Australian Folksong which has several tune variations. I chose to arrange this version of the tune for String Ensemble because of its haunting nature. The arrangement is for Violin 1, Violin 2, Violin 3 (sub for Viola), Viola, Cello and Double Bass. Can be performed by a String Quartet or Quintet as well.

If you use this arrangement, please let me know how its goes! The same tune is also used in my Australian Folksong Medley No. 4 for concert band and a Woodwind Quartet version…

Listen to the MP3; a much better sound!

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.
