Here they are - three brand new pieces by three brand new composers from Castletown Primary School!

Miss Watson set her class homework "Write a tune you can play for descant recorder" and they all did a great job!

I chose these three tunes by Jamie, Ewan and Colin to arrange for the first Caithness Schools Bell Festival because they suited the bells so well and it was easy for me to give everyone in the team plenty to do.

Wish us luck for the premiere - Colin’s piece, "Commonwealth Games Anthem" is particularly challenging, starting with five beats in a bar and changing to six! I’m very sure our 65 young bellringers will have no trouble at all sightreading this tune, rehearsing it with our conductor Susie Dingle and then performing its world premiere to the whole school on the same day. :)

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.
