This piece is dedicated to Apollo: God of light, prophesy, poetry, healing and music. It was the second half of a piece of music that earned an equal first in the Australian Society for Music Education [Queensland Chapter] Young Composers’ Competition. The companion to this piece is Night of the Roaming Dead.

’The Apollo call is sounded. It is replied to and joyful festivities commence. Apollo’s light and healing shines down and his music graces the ears of all who hear it. The scene moves away from the happy gathering to a town where no light shines. A sad lament is heard through the night and grows more passionate as the longing for light intensifies. The Apollo call is sounded through the night, seemingly to no avail, but finally Apollo responds and sends his light to the dark town. Cheers go up as light covers the town and all the happy creatures of light dance through. At the restating of Apollo’s call, his merrymakers and followers join in the song and dance of the enlightened town.’

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.
