What a brief! I adore Faure’s music, but to arrange for 6 cellos without sounding it muddy was a challenge. I also took the liberty of composing a countermelody. You could listen to the mp3 to see how well it works for you. I added a double bass part to take the bass on, as I wanted real depth, but a seventh cello could play that if needs be. Most parts present a challenge, here is an easy-ish part, but in C minor nothing is that easy on strings!

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.
