Home > Wind quintet > The Lone Ar-ranger! (Wind Quintet)

Some while back, I removed the Wind Band and Brass Band arrangements of The Lone Ar-ranger!, as these are now published by companies in the UK and in Switzerland.
The arrangement for Brass Quintet has been quite popular, and recently I was asked to make an arrangement for Bassoon Quartet. It therefore seemed an obvious thing to make an arrangement for Wind Quintet, as this is an equally popular instrumental combination.
Devon-based West Winds Quintet will be premiering the work in the 2005/6 series of Gastronomic Evenings of Musical Delight at Kitley House Hotel, Yealmpton, near Plymouth.
The attached photo shows new oboist, Sam Baxter, replacing Derek Kitt, who passed away suddenly, in November, 2005.
I have recently uploaded a version of the original Oboe part, transposed for Bb clarinet, following a request.
Following a number of requests worldwide, I have now uploaded a special non-playing score, which lists, and identifies all the tune fragments used in The Lone Ar-ranger!

N.B. In the present economic climate, a good number of smaller ensembles understandably buy just the set of parts as, in reality, these alone are all that is needed in performance. Equally, a similar number buy both the parts and the full score. To compensate for this, I intend to reduce the cost of the full score by $4, and increase the price of the lead part by $3, a differential that wasn’t available to sellers at the former SibeliusMusic.com.

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.
