Three part

This list is selected from the main Roding Music list. Sample pieces have been chosen to represent the century and a half of the genre's life, and the many musical styles. Detailed remarks about the twelve pieces may be brought up by clicking on each title.

All scores are available with and without keyboard accompaniment. The accompaniments are straight transcriptions of the vocal parts. Scores without the keyboard part often have fewer page turns and more text underlaid, and are therefore more suitable for singers. Those strophic pieces which are tenor-led have alternative soprano-led versions. Scores appear in a new frame; close the frame to return to this page.

Click on S to view and hear the music from a Sibelius Scorch file. You can if you wish transpose the file up or down into a new key; click on the B flat key signature on the tool bar and follow the on-screen instructions. Click on KS for a Scorch file with added keyboard accompaniment. All Roding Music Scorch files may be downloaded and/or printed out and freely copied for amateur use. Click on the floppy disc icon or the printer icon on the toolbar.

If you are new to Sibelius Scorch or have any trouble with these files please look at the relevant page of Questions and Answers for more information.

MIDI files of all pieces are available on the Numerical List.
