One of the most popular of my arrangements is the brass band version of Rule Britannia! So seeing that I have just started playing my french horn in a wind band I thought I would re-arrange it for wind band.

My Brass Group (Tavistock Versatile Brass Ensemble) T.U.B.E.s started a Last Night of the Proms themed concert about 10 years ago. It proved so successful that we have repeated it every year since, with different music of course. A Proms concert would not be complete without Rule Britannia! Oh and please remember it "rule the waves" and not "rules the waves".

If you purchase the score I can e mail it to you to enable you to print your own parts. i think that is easier.

Enjoy! Regards Chris

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.
