Do not be deceived by "voice and keyboard" in the instrumentation section - there is no available option for "solo voice and solo instrument". This piece was originally written for voice (baritone or tenor) and Irish whistle, for Judy Lloyd’s Celebration of English Saints in Hexham Abbey in 2010. The words are Judy’s adaptation of the prayer, and give a sense of the solitary nature of Aidan and the proximity of the sea. The ideal instrument would be a low D whistle, but the standard whistle has been used with effect.

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.
