Home > Orchestra > THE WAX PRINCE


Malcolm Crane
Difficult (Grades 7+)
6 minutes

The Wax Prince was inspired by the fantasy adventure novel of the same name written by my daughter Anna. It hopefully captures the excitement of the quest as well as the atmosphere of the magical kingdom in which the story is set.

It is intrinsically easy once the "Magnificent 7" rhythm is mastered but it does require a fairly competent horn section. The harp, Vibraphone and celeste parts used in the middle "magical" section can be played on keyboards if required.

The film music style of The Wax Prince would be an ideal addition to any good youth orchestra's programme.

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.
