Although The Lone Ar-ranger was the first score I ever uploaded to SibeliusMusic.com - the predecessor of Score Exchange, and that was way back at the start of the Millennium, it has always proved one of my most popular pieces.

Over the years, it has spawned many different versions - some fairly conventional in instrumental, others somewhat more challenging. A lot of these different versions have come about from email requests around the world, as has this present version for Flute, Violin & Piano.

Sioux Stoeckle, Instructor of English and Theatre Arts at Palo Verde College, Blythe, California, recently wrote:

’Some time ago, our chamber music group played yourLone Ar-ranger with a slightly wacky instrumentation - which worked really well! Back then, we had two flutes, a violin, and a trombone. At any rate, our group has changed personnel, and now we are down to three: flute, violin, and piano.

I’m wondering if it would be possible for you to arrange the piece for that instrumentation?’

I had made a version for Violin & Piano, so it was good to be able to add the flute to this. As ever, it allowed me to make some individual tweaks to both parts, so that the violin’s part here is slightly different from the part used in the version without flute.

If there’s any other combination, or instrumental switch you'd like, just email, and I’ll always see if something is viable!

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.
