Instrumental parts

The vocal range in this song is quite limited as the pupil playing the part of the Caterpillar was a boy whose voice was in the middle of breaking, giving him a working range of about 5 notes. The band nicknamed this ’the Madness one’ and it was a deliberate attempt to do a pastiche of the 2-tone sound. The band version of ’Father William’ shows this off better than the playback here.

An audio recording of ’Alice’ is available from me - just drop me a line.

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.
