A very early composition of mine from 1973. This recent new arrangement has been tidied up some and has a completely new flute part with also a completely rewritten middle section for flute and classical guitar. This version is for high tenor, or countertenor, but it is easily singable in the "popular song" vocal range (could do it myself). Originally it was written for a friend, Dawn, with a very mellow high soprano voice. I include TAB for the non-specialist guitar player too. Focus on mellow, dreamy and a gentle ebb and flow and you will have it!

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.
