Ulfgar's Cottage is a rough translation of Wolvercote, a village adjoining Oxford. This tune is modelled on north-eastern style fiddle tunes like those by James Hill, and may also remind you of the 'Bluebell' and 'Primrose' Polkas.The character of the music is influenced by the way the fingers go in this key, Bb, - or maybe vice versa….

This score was originally posted (under the bland title of 'Country Dance') as part of an experiment to see what kind of titles attract people. I concocted several short pieces on one day for this express purpose, and added this one, written a day or two earlier.

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.
