An arrangement of three popular hymn tunes namely 'Bunessan' & 'Nearer My God To Thee' & 'Eternal Father Strong to Save' for Recorder Consort.

''Bunessan'' is a traditional melody, made famous by Cat Stevens and entitled ''Morning Has Broken'', whilst ''Nearer My God To Thee'', composed by Lovel Mason, was reputed to have been performed as the Titanic was sinking; by the ship's string quartet. It has been used for two U.S. President's funerals!

The last hymn is very popular at naval burials, and funerals for souls lost at sea, and I hope this little compilation of hymns for recorders will prove pleasing, and a welcome addition to consorts looking for suitable material for church.

There are also 3 Welsh Chorales for Recorders in my store.

Parts on request.

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, 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 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.
