The California Song Book
The previous examples in (*.pdf) format can be viewed and printed easily from various different computer platforms using the widely-known Adobe Reader internet browser plug-in, available as a free download from Adobe at http://get.adobe.com/reader/. This format, however, requires that you (or someone else) actually play the music, which may pose a problem for some Cal enthusiasts.
All Hail! Blue and Gold, Fight for California, and Sons of California are here also presented using Sibelius notation software, which produces a format (*.sib) that allows music not only to be viewed and printed easily from various different computer platforms, but even transposed and played back using Scorch, an internet browser plug-in available as a free download from Sibelius at http://www.sibelius.com/products/scorch/index.html. Scorch allows you to playback Sibelius (*.sib) scores using the sounds provided by your own computer soundcard or external MIDI device, such as a sound module or synthesizer (if connected to your PC).
Please try the Sibelius/Scorch versions of All Hail! Blue and Gold, as well as the others, and let Hargrove Music Library Web know whether you find this format useful. Additional Scorch files of Cal songs may be provided if there is sufficient demand. For (*.mp3) audio files of some Cal favorites please browse the Cal Band webpages. Go Bears!
