O God, our help in ages past has long associations with Remembrance Sunday/Armistice Day and other commemorative occasions. This setting was first used for a college Sesquicentennial anniversary in which a new chapel organ was opened. The descant for verse three, either sung or played by a solo trumpet, is supported by a free harmonization, leading to a very full and rich SATB setting for verse four, unaccompanied except for organ punctuations. The final verse is treated with another effective descant and free harmonization. Upon request accompaniment scored for 5-part brass and organ is available. A more extensive instrumental accompaniment of 8-part brass, tympani, and organ, as featured on the recording "To Sing with Heart and Voice" from Holy Trinity Garrison Church, Windsor, is also available.

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.
