This is an arrangement for two harpsichords of a piece I composed last fall. Feedback on the original included someone who was appalled at the joke I was making with the title! I believe one must always maintain a sense of humour. This is dedicated to all those dancing bears out there.

The price is so High because I am writing these 'on approval' for a harpsichord duo, and displaying them here primarily for feedback (of which I have received none so far), and I currently want to discourage idle prints. If you really really want to print a copy, I can arrange for a much much much lower price (probably free). Just email me. Thanks, and have fun at the dance!

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.
