This set of variations for brass band is based on a rather well-known theme, which emerges gradually during the piece, and is stated fully at the end. The title is borrowed from a remarkable book by Roger Scruton, the British philosopher and amateur composer - if you want a clue to the thoughts behind the music, read the book! Brass band, as well as being a medium I am fond of, seemed the ideal one for this particular piece. If you download the score and want to perform it, please e-mail me for a set of parts, which I will provide!

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.
