My Op 17, was written in 1979 for the choir of Bishop Grosseteste College but was not performed publicly. The lyrics are based on a prayer from St Swithun’s prayer book with additional lyrics from myself. It was intended to be both powerful and joyful, but although it is very melodic the tessitura is wide. Where the soprano goes to high B and the basses drop very low to D would sound glorious with a professional choir, but an amateur outfit could reasonably adapt by singing the additional bass and soprano notes.

Please let me know if you are an amateur choir performing this piece as a recording would be very much appreciated. Professionals please contact me in the normal way!

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
