Charlie Chaplin On The Beach (for mixed recorders)

Year of composition
Difficult (Grades 7+)
3 minutes
Quartet (Soprano Recorder)

I recently received an email from Peter Petocz, a member of 'The Reluctant Consort' based in Sydney, Australia. They are a long-established ensemble who play recorders and other instruments. Google their name and check out their web site. Peter suggested that 'Charley Chaplin On The Beach' would make a welcome addition to their repertoire and very kindly offered to arrange the piece for the larger recorders - Tenor, Bass, Great Bass and Contrabass. He also made this arrangement for mixed recorders, descant, treble, tenor and bass. I was delighted by his offer and am grateful to him and pleased to make available the arrangement and parts on this site. Thanks again Peter Petocz!

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.
