I'm still working on the parts but for those of you who want a head start. Have a look at these parts.

Here is the new project page, just started, far from being completed.

thumbs-up Thanks for that and cheers !

@Fiddlerman - are you still planning to post the .xml  / .MusicXML file or waiting until the other (viola etc) parts are done ?    [ That is, if you *are* planning other instruments.... ]    Could be useful either way... 

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

@Ripton - it's an XML-formatted file which describes the contents of the score.  It is an accepted interchange-format for transferring between different score-writing programs.  AFAIK Pierre uses "Finale", and can export the score in that format.  I use MuseScore - and - lo and behold - it can import the file from Finale.

.xml is human-readable (it doesn't HAVE to be, but being so allows easy debug if/when necessary).

Here's a tune I'm working on - "Bonnie Lass o Fyvie" - here's the score created by MuseScore -

And here's an extract from the exported xml file - so if someone else wanted to use it - either on MuseScore or some other score writing program I would just send them the .xml file -
