Viola part from Celebration Gloria

Jill Elliott 2011
2 minutes

This is the full score (original) version of a new setting of the Gloria written for the congregation and musicians of the Priory of the Holy Spirit (Blackfriars), Oxford, and first sung there on September 25th 2011. Proceeds from the sale of this setting will go to the priory’s building renewal fund. This score, for string quartet or equivalent, and optional wind instruments, presented no problems for the instrumentalists, who mastered it in a 10 minute rehearsal, whilst the congregation picked up much of the vocal part in a brief practice before Mass. Until copyright permission has been confirmed the music is provided without text, as it is possible for the congregation to sing the words direct from their new missals. The setting is largely syllabic, with any small melismas indicated by slurs in the vocal part.

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.
