"Plaisir d’amour" (literally "The pleasure of love") is a classical French love song written in 1784 by Jean-Paul-Égide Martini (1741–1816); it took its text from a poem by Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian (1755–1794), which appears in his novel Célestine.

The pleasure of love lasts only a moment The grief of love lasts a lifetime.

I gave up everything for ungrateful Sylvia, She is leaving me for another lover.

The pleasure of love lasts only a moment, The grief of love lasts a lifetime.

"As long as this water will run gently Towards this brook which borders the meadow,

I will love you", Sylvia told me repeatedly. The water still runs, but she has changed.

The pleasure of love lasts only a moment, The grief of love lasts a lifetime.

Plaisir d’amour ne dure qu’un moment. chagrin d’amour dure toute la vie.

J’ai tout quitté pour l’ingrate Sylvie. Elle me quitte et prend un autre amant.

Plaisir d’amour ne dure qu’un moment. chagrin d’amour dure toute la vie.

Tant que cette eau coulera doucement vers ce ruisseau qui borde la prairie,

Je t’aimerai me répétait Sylvie. L’eau coule encore. Elle a changé pourtant.

Plaisir d’amour ne dure qu’un moment. chagrin d’amour dure toute la vie.

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.
