This is a brass quintet arrangement of Pachelbel’s Canon, with the lovely Gigue which originally followed it but is omitted from most arrangements. This music has been very carefully arranged and is interesting and stimulating to play for all players (even the tuba gets a solo!). The parts are quite difficult - it is intended for an advanced group of players - but are all perfectly playable. If some notes go slightly out of range for certain players, e.g. top C for the horn in F, they should be pulled down an octave.

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.
