A Symphonic Poem for Orchestra

Composer
Duration
15 minutes
Genre
Other and Classical music

A Symphonic telling of the story of Christmas! I began working on this piece in Summer 2014, whilst it was strange working on Christmas music whilst the sun was still shining I had long wanted to write a ’Christmas Symphony’ which re-told the Nativity story in a engaging and cinematic way.

After the celebratory fanfare opening, the Nativity story is recounted through carols such as; ’Once In Royal David’s City’, ’The Angel Gabriel’, ’Tell Out My Soul’, ’O Little Town of Bethlehem’, ’O Tannenbaum’, ’Angels From The Reals of Glory’, ’Deck The Halls’, ’God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’, ’Away In A Manger’, ’Coventry Carol’ and ’O Come All Ye Faithful’ with many references to Classical repertoire and other well known Christmas tunes along the way.

This is sure to be an audience favourite with well known Christmas Carols re-imagined in an exciting cinematic way!

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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
