Alto Saxophone part from Prayer of St. Francis

4 minutes
Rock and Pop Music

This is the final piece completed to accompany my "Gospel Mass of St. Francis of Assisi," though it was started before all the others. It can be performed in conjunction with the Mass (I would recommend it as a ending piece, with my "Canticle of the Sun" as an opener) or as a stand-alone anthem.

The style of this one is more rock than jazz, but it fits well with the others. There is some flexibility with the drum part, but the introduction and sections C, E and I should be played as written. The soloist should put his personal stamp on the piece, with the freedom particularly to ad lib over the ending strains in section H.

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.
