The Little Organ Book BWV.599-644 is a music note which contains 164 choral titles. However, Johann Sebastian Bach wrote only 47 (including a fragment). "O Mensch, bewein’ dein’ Sunde gross",No.24, BWV.622, is the same as the last choral in the part one of Matthaus Passion BVW.244. Very beautiful and poignant.

O Mensch, bewein’ dein’ Sunde gross, darum Christus sein’s Vaters Schooss aussert und kam auf Erden. Von einer Jungfrau rein und zart fur uns er hier geboren ward, er wollt’ der Mittler werden. Den Todten er das Leben gab und legt’ dabei all’ Krankheit ab, bis sich die Zeit herdrange, dass er fur uns gekopfert wurd’, trug uns’rer Sunden schwere Burd’

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.
