The setting of Burns's "Wha is that at My Bower-Door?". If you find the piece interesting (I would define that as Micro-Opera, being not sure whether such a genre has ever existed), yet the Horn part seems to be too difficult (I've had an excellent horn player who did manage to play it!) - let me know, I have written another "orchestra" score, for piano and cello. Actually, the number of singers can be reduced as well and be available for one single soloist. Have fun listening to the whole opera during exactly two minutes!

The horn part is slightly revised by eliminating its former "extremism", so it has become a bit easier than that played part I've mentioned above.

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.
