Christmas Medley! was originally written back in 1990, as a short medley of Christmas tunes for school instrumentalists - flute or recorder trio and piano.

As such it has been well received, and I have made a number of different arrangements and versions of it.

It recently occurred to me that I hadn’t actually produced a version for a solo instrument and piano, as this is sometimes requested.

I have done this in two parts - there is already a version for solo wind instruments, and now the present one for solo string instruments.

As I have kept the concert key the same for all the string instruments (just adjusting for range and transposition), a a violin could combine with a cello, or viola, or even both.

Currently the string parts available are: Violin, Viola, and Cello’

Please note: The version for strings is in G major, while that for wind instruments is a tone lower - F major. It would, of course, be possible to provide any respective transposition, to allow for any combination of string and wind instruments.

Please just ask!

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.
