Instrumental parts

I wrote the baroque style piece for flute and continuo to accompany my Youtube video of the same name, featuring a selection from the 183 illustrations in the celebrated 1900 edition of Gilbert White's classic 18th century work, 'The Natural History of Selborne', drawn by my great-great-half-uncle, Edmund Hort New. Though the score specifies harpsicord accompaniment, with a cello part dobling the right hand of keyboard, it could of course just as easily be played on the piano. Listen to the mp3 version.It has a 2 bar cello intro, which is useful if playing along with 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.
