The Lone Ar-ranger! has been arguably my most popular scores and has appeared in many different versions - both for large ensemble, and for more intimate-sized combinations.

In a good number of cases, I have produced popular stock versions - for example, Wind Quintet, Wind Band, Flute & Piano, or Piano Duet.

But from time to time I have been asked for 'bespoke' versions, some of which have been for quite interesting combinations, even at times, bizarre.

A good few years ago I produced a version of The Lone Ar-ranger! for Flute and Piano for a musical colleague, flautist and woodwind teacher - Lynsey Blair - and, like a good number of friends I have, the initial contact has been via my original scores or arrangements, which is essentially of greater importance than how many copies of this, or that piece I might have sold!

A short while ago, Lynsey got back in touch to ask whether I had a version for Two Flutes & Piano, which, in fact, I didn't have.

Whenever I make a new version, for many reasons, I'll add little bits here and there, so that, just as the instrumentation is different, so each version is tailor-made, so to speak, each time. Obviously the basic mold is the same, but what might suit a flute doesn't always sit well for a clarinet, or where double-stopping, for example, is a feature of strings, but strictly not possible, say, on a bassoon!

Of course, a version for Two Flutes & Piano, makes better sense than one, say, for bagpipes, violin and accordion, in terms of commercial viability, but within reason I'm happy to accommodate most people's specification.

Lynsey also asked for a similar version of another of my more-popular pieces - Samba..alla Turca! - and I was happy to produce this for her, too!

The dedication - To Lynsey and Molly - is for Lynsey, and her flute-playing student and colleague, Molly Hunt in Chester.

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.
