A new arrangement of music especially for ’’National Day’’ in Norway, which falls on the 17th of May each year.

Bands all over the land march around their towns and villages, in celebration of Norway’s independence from Sweden.

The little set consists of ’’Ja vi elsker’’, ’’Fagert er landet’’, ’’Gud signe vårt dyre fedreland’,’’Smaa barnas nasjonalsang’’, ’’Kongsesangen’’, an original march entitled ’’17 mai (Constitution marsj)’’, and a small compilation of three marches which include,’’Vaarsang’’, ’’Gammel Jegermarsj’’ and ’’Mellom bakkar og berg’’ by Lindeman.

These arrangements will work very well with just four players. As long as you cover all four parts, you are guaranteed a very rich and full-sounding arrangement.

If you have some percussion players to augment your group, it will sound even better.

This arrangement comes with parts for flexible band.

If you are interested in other music for brass, have a look at my Norwegian publisher’s web site, for my set of ’’7 Julesangs’’, for Brass Quartet, Flexible Band and Piano:www.musikk-huset.no

The Norwegian Constitution Day is the National Day of Norway and is an official national holiday each year. Among Norwegians, the day is referred to simply as syttende mai (meaning May Seventeenth), Nasjonaldagen (The National Day) or Grunnlovsdagen (The Constitution Day), although the latter is less frequent.

If you require other parts, e-mail me your requirements, and I will up-load parts to my Sibelius store within 24hrs:keithterrett@gmail,com

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.
