Violin 1 part from Southwell Variations

2 minutes
Other parts

’Southwell’ is the tune generally used for the Lenten hymn ’Lord Jesus, think on me.’ Organists will be happy to improvise on this melody, but other instruments may need a little help - hence these variations. They could be used as a stand-alone communion instrumental or individual variations could be used to add variety when singing the hymn. Omit, reorder or repeat variations ad lib. Any instruments may be used, as this is merely a default setting. So far it has rarely been played exactly as written, and saxophone and clarinet have taken part. The flute part looks horrific, but was managed well by two different flautists, so stands. However, the other players should be sympathetic to the flautist’s need to breathe!

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, 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 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.
