For our forthcoming concert in September we will be joined by a trombone friend of ours. I was going to write this as a trombone solo (and still might for posting on Sibelius) but I thought that I would write it for my instrument, the french horn, just for a change. My Mothers keeps saying I should have more solo’s. So here’s one that i will play at the concert.

The tune/song was written by American song writer Stephen Foster in 1854 and still just as tuneful and fresh today.

If the french horn is not your thing but you like the piece then give me a shout and I can switch the parts so that the solo is played by the brass instrument of your choice.

Still waiting for a review of one of my pieces. Would be great if you could help out on that front. But be nice as I’m only a part time arranger.

Have fun.

Cheers 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.
