Song sheets for you to download, play and print

From here you can view, play and print a song sheet for each of the tracks on the 'Parallel Strands' CD. The song sheets have been prepared using 'Sibelius Scorch'.

If you have not used 'Scorch' before you will be invited to download a 'plug-in' for your web browser when you click on one of the links below. You will be given the opportunity to read the instructions for 'Scorch' when you have downloaded the software (it is small and doesn't take long to load). If you can't wait, go straight to the 'Scorch' download page here.

We hope that you will use these files and sing the songs. For the traditional songs on this CD we would like it if you could ensure that, when you introduce the song to an audience, you acknowledge the singer that it came from and, secondly, the work of Sabine Baring-Gould and his colleagues collector who recorded it for us.

There are several songs of my own on the CD which are also included, with others, under the 'Songbook' section of this site in 'Scorch' format. I retain the rights to these songs but please feel free to sing them as often as you wish - that's what they are for. If you should wish to record or broadcast them, I would appreciate it if you could contact me first.
