4 minutes
Classical music

This piece is a four-voice isorhythmic motet of early 14th century English origin. The full title is: O Homo Considera (�Ponder Well, Oh Man, in Thought�)/ O homo de pulvere / Contratenor /Filiae Jerusalem. An isorhythm (from the Greek for "the same rhythm") was a an early musical technique that arranged a fixed pattern of pitches with a repeating rhythmic pattern. Here the anonymous composer weaves independent pitch and rhythmic patterns into a simple yet haunting tapestry. Listen to the MP3 recording by The Brethren Brass for a "real" and accurate performance.

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.
