(Do, please, read the notes to the first three movement of this suite.) Before the river Medlock leaves the metropolitan boroughs of Oldham and Tameside and begins to broaden out on its way to Manchester and the sea, it winds its way through the tree-lined valley beyond Park Bridge into Daisy Nook. Here in generations past the people of Oldham and its surrounding area found some respite from the gruelling conditions of monstrous steel and cotton mills and the stifling spaces of back-to-back terraced housing. Lovers walked hand in hand, families brought their pic-nics and the cheerful sounds, colours, lights and movements of seasonal fun-fairs offered moments of relaxation and delight. Much of that sense of relaxation and delight in simple human pleasures still persists as you walk the river bank today. In the music of this last movement of my Medlock Way Suite I have tried to suggest that the river itself joins in the recollection of such fun and frolic and rejoicing in being part of things where human beings relax as well as where they toil. To round things off, there is an unashamedly enthusiastic farewell wave to the river as it speeds on its way towards the sea, the sky and its water's return for another journey across the surface of the land somewhere on the planet.

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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
