Mar Lodge in Aberdeenshire is a grand country pile near Braemar (see pic at www.ltr.co.uk/properties/scotland/mar/photoalbum/ph1). This music tells the story of the Lodge from misty beginnings, through ceilidhs, grand cronstruction plans and a succession of owners. There was a catastrophic fire at the Lodge after which it was refurbished and is now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland.(http://www.nts.org.uk). This music is for amateur chamber orchestra plus professional principal string players plus bodhran (playable on side drum). Contact me for parts.

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.
