GUEST,^&* New Irish Music resource - interactive scores (9) New Irish Music resource- interactive scores... 17 Nov 10

A recent announcement from the Irish Traditional Music Archive :

A new feature is now available on the Irish Traditional Music Archive website interactive music scores. These are music notations that you can not only view on screen but also play back in lots of user-friendly ways. You can start, pause and stop playback anywhere you want in a score, skip forwards or backwards quickly in it, change its playback tempo or change its key. An ideal learning environment!

From now on, ITMA will be regularly adding more notations from historic music collections to this area for you to enjoy, using Sibelius's Scorch software.

Our first set of scores is now available. It consists of the first 100 tunes from Ryan's Mammoth Collection, published in Boston in the 1880s. We will be adding more tunes from this and other collections regularly watch this space!

The relevant page is HERE. Windows version uses an Activex download - worked fine for me.
