anyone interested in free and high quality software for musical composition should consider Musescore. it has a high quality synthesizer and many many useful features.
they have recently come out with a new and improved version.September 19, 2015 at 8:20 am #324Tony NewnhamParticipant
Ive been using Musescore for a little while – initially the first version, and more recently the new update. No great problems, but I did have some initial problems with v.1 causing the computer to crash. No issues (so far) apart from a couple of very minor gremlins with the current version. Easy to extract parts and to transpose (as well as dealing with transposing instruments) – I needed Treble & bass recorder parts in Treble clef with C fingerings – dead easy. Reccomended – and you certainly can’t beat the price!

Hmm. Sounds interesting. I’ve been PrintMusic by Finale, a low cost (about $100) version of the main platform. It’s worked very well for me.

Two thumbs up for MuseScore. It’s very stable, and I’ve been using it regularly for something like a year now. And of course you can’t beat the price.September 29, 2015 at 12:47 pm #333
are you willing to share any of your compositions?September 29, 2015 at 12:57 pm #334
Who are you asking?
Have you tried googling for “victor eijkhout recorder composition”?
PS I use both MuseScore and Lilypond. The latter looks definitely better, but is harder to use.

My attangement of the Sussex Carol is in the files section of the You Tube Recorder Lovers group. “Praise God for the Harvest” is available to anyone who asks. I’ve also done a couple of other Harvest hymn arrangements including Flute &/or Clarient – most also with recorders. Just ask. One day I’ll find time to put a web site up – but don’t hold your breath! The Harvest arrangements can be heard on my Facebook page, except “We Plough the Fields” which had some problems – but that’s scored for Harpsichord/organ (I used a Viscount single manual as a poor man’s Clavierorgue), Flute & Clarinet – no recorders.
