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

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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
