This is the second movement of ’Bassoonery’, a little suite I wrote for the Oxfordshire Youth Bassoon Ensemble, whose players ranged from Grade 2 to Grade 8. They played it in the original 5-part version,in which 2 of the parts are easy. As the original version had rather a lot of rests I’ve condensed it into 4 parts of more equal difficulty. Spot the quotation from a 1960s song with a similar title! This for 3 bassoons and a contra. I am also providing a version for four bassoons.

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.
