Compositions by Colin Bradford

Video demo versions

If you click on any tune title shown in red, you should be presented with a scrolling video demonstration of the tune. These computer-generated demo versions aren't the same as having live musicians but they are useful to demonstrate the tune itself and also to show possible arrangements with one or two harmonic lines in addition to the tune. They are made using Finale. the score-writing program which I use for writing and arranging music.

The Youtube versions are very compressed for speed of opening. The MP4 versions are higher quality but slower to download. If you are likely to refer to them frequently, it's probably best to save them to your hard drive .


Paper copies

For most of the tunes (and eventually all) PDF copies of the "dots" can be downloaded.

Sound only versions

For some of the tunes you may find MP3 or WAV files which are all sound-only. These sound files are a mix of live recordings and computer-generated recordings.



Some of my tunes have been re-arranged from their original accordion and fiddle settings in an attempt to suit a woodwind trio of flute, oboe and clarinet. You can find these here.
