ABC(plus) tune page

Klik hier voor Nederlands

I am a keen exponent of the ABC(plus) method of music notation. This section of my website tries to showcaces some of its possibilities.

Tranposition Options

Special 'one-click transpositions:
    None [=selected]    (1 octave down) Cello    (2 octaves down) Cello    (e.g. Clarinet in) Bb    (e.g. Alt Sax in) Eb    (e.g. Horn in) F    (e.g. Euphonium in) Bb, 1 octave down

general transposition:

N.B. This sheet music is also available in a variety of formats on this site together with the accompanying lyrics.

I have 'untrasposed' (at least) one voice in one tune to fit in better with my own site's transposition options
