Clarinet choir

I adapted this clarinet choir arrangement from my brass quintet, "We Are the Martians," but expanded the original score to accomodate the high-pitched part for Eb soprano clarinet, along with other changes. In the audio playback, the optional substitute instruments, Bb contrabass clarinet (for Eb contra-alto) and basset horn (for Eb alto), are muted to avoid an imbalance. If no contras are available, ask a bass clarinet player to read from the contrabass score–better an octave high than not at all. If no timpanis are available, settle for any bass-pitched drum without snares.

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.
