Lieder-meister Franz Schubert composed this version of the 23rd Psalm when he was 23 years old, in 1820. A too-infrequently-heard jewel, the piece was a gift for a voice-teacher friend of Schubert’s. The original SSAA (four singers only) arrangement included a lilting, obbligato-like piano accompaniment. I have transposed the key down from A-flat to F major to suit a mixed choir of male and female singers and removed the accompaniment, as the harmonies work beautifully a cappella (although a vocal reduction is supplied for rehearsal).

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.
