Mo Dhachaigh (My Home) - First published in 1828 in the form of a jig titled John Bàn’s Sister’s Wedding by Donald MacDonald in his Collection of Quicksteps, Strathspeys, Reels, & Jigs. A slowed-down version of this provided the tune for the Gaelic song Mo Dhachaidh by songwriter and composer Malcolm MacFarlane of Paisley (1853-1931). It’s a sentimental song about the composer’s love for hearth and home, also known as My Ain Hoose.

Heilan’ Air - A slow air learned many years ago, the origins of which remain hidden by time. It is likely, however, to be a pipe tune in light of its construction.

An Eala Bhàn (The White Swan) - A Gaelic love song composed in the trenches of the Great War during the battle of the Somme, by Donald MacDonald (Dòmhnall Ruadh Chorùna) from North Uist, for his sweetheart Maggie MacLeod.

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.
