Henry Eccles (1670–1742) was an English composer and violinist. His Violin Sonata in g-minor is very popular, which corresponds to 12 Sonatas for Violin and Continuo, Book 1: No. 11, in 1720. Other pieces in the Book are also attractive as as can be listened to the recent recording by Callipygian Players. This No. 2 consists of the following movements: I. Largo, II. Allegro, III. Sarabande: Largo, IV. Rondeau gavotte: Vivace, V. Giga: Allegro. Someone may feel that the five movement sounds like Joseph Bodin de Boismortier’s work, who was a French composer in the same period (1689-1755). It might be related to the theory that Eccles was in France and he borrowed movements from the others for the Book. Anyway, players will enjoy the music written in the score. This music note is for Violin & Violoncello Duet.

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.
