Play Along with Past Camps

The RSSC Galleries and the LYCO Bandcamp Page contain half a day of music. Have you ever wanted to play along with one of them? For just a few pieces, we have synchronised the notation with the concert recording, so you can do just that.

Or if you have ever just wanted to listen to a string orchestra while following all the parts in the conductor’s score, this is also the right place for that…

Jig Set: Blackthorn Stick / Rakes of Kildare (RSSC 2012)

Corelli – Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 7 (RSSC 2012)

5. Vivace

Handel – Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 8 (RSSC 2013)

Of these three movements, we recommend starting with the 6th (the easiest) and ending with the 4th (the hardest). Ironically, out of these only the 5th movement has concertino parts, normally a distinguishing feature of a concerto grosso.

4. Grave

5. Andante (Siciliana)

6. Allegro

How to See Most of the Music

You may find that the page of sheet music leaps around faster than you can read it. This is easy to fix:

First, select the gear in the lower right. (On small screens, this won’t be visible. Select the “⋯” in lower right, and then the gear.)

Then you have a choice.

Display a Page with Your Part

  1. Set Layout to Paged.
  2. For the part you want to see, select the Solo button. This will hide the other parts.

Display All the Parts and Have them Move Smoothly

  1. Set Layout to Horizontal.
  2. If the rows don’t all fit on your screen, reduce the Zoom level until they do.
