This is the penultimate piece in the collection: Ten Short Easy Piano Pieces.

’Heartening and uplifting’ - John Lill, CBE

’I am impressed by Charles McCreerys collection of pieces; they are all so different. I think my favourites are Envoi, Antique Song and Canon - I find the counterpoint very appealing…Story is a piece I could easily give to some of my pupils to play. And the Marches work very well…Altogether an album that many young players would be pleased to acquire’- Dr Julia Gasper, LGSM

This piece should sound grand and assertive, as the title implies, but still reasonably legato, rather than thumped. The square triplet brackets above the right hand staff at the opening and elsewhere indicate that the right hand tune, considered in isolation from the left, can be considered as being in 3/4 time for some of its course. If this is born in mind when playing, an effect of cross-rhythm may be created. (To see the same theme treated in 3/4 throughout, see ’Canon’ from the same collection.)

A bound and illustrated volume of the complete set of Ten Short Easy Piano Pieces is available from the online music retailers, Tutti, at: http://www.tutti.co.uk/search?q=mccreery

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.
