Poem by Victor hugo dated 1835. Also set in music by Gabriel Fauré ( "Mai"). Translation:

Since May all in bloom is calling us in the meadows Come! and don’t be tired of mixing your soul With the countryside, the woods, the charming shades, The large moonlights on the banks of sleeping waters,

The track where the path is starting, And the air and the spring and the immense horizon, An horizon that this world is attaching humble and joyous Like a hem at the bottom of the robe of the sky!

Come! and may the gaze of the modest stars Which falls on the earth through so many veils, May the tree pervaded with perfumes and songs, May the scorching breath of midday in the fields,

And the shade and the sunshine and the water and the greenery, And the glow of the whole nature Cause to open, like a double flower, Beauty on your forehead and love in your heart!

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.
