Thread: Free Scores & Parts ...

    Free Scores & Parts ...

    I thought I'd start a new thread if anybody wants to give free compositions & arrangements to bands, ensembles & soloists.

    I want to share an arrangement of Resphigi's first suite of Ancient Airs & Dances to anyone interested. There is a problem with Score Exchange at the moment uploading scores, as written instructions for expression seem to include notation such as quavers replacing lower case "e"s but this is not on my Sibelius nor pdf versions of my efforts. Links to both Scorch scores (other movements are linked to first) and my pdf copies are below. I recently sent score/parts to Munich Brass to work on. I had a particular band in mind when I worked on it.

    Resphigi - Scorch Score

    PDF Score & Parts

    cheers, Tom

    A great idea all round, I know folks have to earn a crust, and agree that hard work should be rewarded. However when music is available free to use, then I reckon it should be given as wide an audience as possible.
    Resting from banding.

    I forgot to post this freebie offer ... sorry! It's coming up close to the Olympics now and this is an arrangement of a march by Josef Suk that won a silver medal for composition at the 1932 Olympics. John Williams also featured it on an album featuring famous Olympic related music. Review it here ... http://www.scoreexchange.com/scores/91840.html and download a zipfile of both score & parts here ... https://dl.dropbox.com/u/24275635/To...New%20Life.zip

    Here's the original version of Josef Suk's "Toward A New Life" performed by the Boston Pops Orchestra conducted by John Williams ... see last post.
