Timpani from Two Songs of Death for Mezzo Soprano, Piano, and Timpani

Composer
Duration
5 minutes
Genre
Modern classical music

These Vassar Miller poems present two views of death. The first, Momento Mori, is morbid and the setting is very dramatic. The second, Old Dog, is more optimistic. Both require a strong pitch sense of the singer as the intervals are angular. The piano part supports the singer at times and is more independent at others. The timpani part adds color and drama.

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.
