’Islands & Mountains’ is a traditional melody from Papua New Guinea, and was arranged for wind-military band at the request of the Director of Music Chief Inspector Pala Walo, MBE, of my former band, the ’Band of The Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary’, for the National Day Celebrations in PNG during September 2005.

I hope you like my arrangement of this old traditional melody, and for anyone who has lived and worked in Papua New Guinea, I hope it conjures up the atmosphere of a weekend on the beach or beside the pool, with a bottle or two of SP beer!

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.
