I have attempted a new English rendition that rhymes but here after is the literal translation (AJ):

1._If there is a charming lawn That heaven waters, Where shines in every season Some flower in bloom, Where one can gather by handfuls Lilies, honeysuckles and jasmins, I want to make it the path For your foot to rest on!

2._If there is a truly loving chest That is ruled by honour, And whose firm dedication Has nothing morose in it, If this noble chest always Beats for a worthy cause, I want to make it the pillow For your forehead to rests on!

3._If there is a dream of love, Perfumed with roses, In which one can find everyday Some sweet thing, A dream blessed by God, Where the soul unites with the soul, Oh! I want to make it the nest For your heart to rest in!

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.
