The third in of a set of four light-hearted songs written recently as a wedding gift for a friend and his bride, Madeleine. The MP3 recordings give a clearer representation of the songs than does the Scorch playback. After having spent several years living in Paris, the groom is now a highly commended jazz-cabaret performer (singer and pianist) and latterly has developed a successful and lucrative career as an orchestral conductor doing international corporate �gigs� at which he presents the symphony orchestra as a paradigm for effective management and co-ordination of company personnel - (nowadays commonly referred to as �human resources� or simply HR). I offer these snippets of biographical information in the hope that they will help explain some of the specifically personal and occasionally arcane references inherent in the lyrics.

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.
