Simply put, this is a Bohemian lullaby that I came across and it was simply too beautiful to pass up. I hope I did it justice, and realize that (perhaps due mostly to my naivity) I tried to maintain a fairly Bohemian musicality. Let it be very free moving, and drop to a very quiet hush at the end. It was written with a small ensemble in mind, perhaps two voices to a part, where two of the singing individuals also played the guitars. Also, a note on the guitar part: it is only a very, very rough outline for the instrumentalists, and they would be advised to take as many liberties as they are capable while maintaining the feel of the song.

Suggestions for improving the piece, especially its emotional motives, would always be greatly appreciated.

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.
