Instrumental parts

Some time back, I was reviewing a recital in Plymouth’s Mother Church, featuring trumpet and organ. One of the pieces heard was in the nature of a slow meditation, which appealed a good deal, and I decided to try and compose something in a similar vein.
I have written it for Flugelhorn and organ, as the rather more mellow tone of the instrument would better suit the somewhat ’devotional’ nature of the writing, I feel, although the trumpet would be a viable alternative. Equally, a clarinet or other Bb flat instrument might be substituted.
I have now added an alternative version with piano accompaniment, where an organ isn’t available..

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.
