An arrangement for a pair of Oboes, Bassoon)and Harpsichord, from Handel’s Suite in D, also known as the Allegro from the Water Music.

The Bassoon is a nice addition if you have a player at hand, the bass part for Bassoon is in the left hand keyboard.

This arrangement would also work with a pair of flutes, or with a mix of one flute and one oboe.

It would make a very nice voluntary in church, and I would imagine it suiting a wedding ceremony.

If you need parts for the Oboe D’amore, let me know.

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.
