This is from my suite of Northumbria Dances.(the other one at present is "Howick Hoedown". It is a typical jig in in 6/8 time as played by a ceilidh band. In addition to my original material it has snippets of "Lamb Skinnet" (a Northumbrian Small pipes melody) and "the Keel Row"(a traditional Tyneside song) These are initially played as separate entries and all 3 themes are played together at the end. My thoughts in doing this were "It is nearing the end of the band’s gig and the various members,haven taken a drink or two,can’t decide what to play.They start off playing the same music but forget what’s happening towards the end!!!!"

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.
