Jersey Local Anthem for Brass Quintet (MFAO World National Anthem Series)
The local anthem of Jersey arranged for Brass Quintet.
In 2007, the Jersey government started a search for a new local anthem, where one of separate identity, such as at the Commonwealth Games, is required. (As a British Crown Dependency, “God Save the Queen” is the official national anthem.) Both songs created by the public and traditional Jersey songs were considered. At a public concert the following spring, Gerard Le Feuvre’s “Island Home” was selected as the new anthem.
The anthem was apparently inspired by the sounds of Jersey wildlife (the opening three notes, if played two octaves lower, are apparently the lowing of a Jersey cow), Jersey poetry, and Jersey folk music, and was written independently of the contest, in 2002. Lyrics were written both in English and in Jèrriais, a version of the Norman language spoken on the island.

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:
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.
