I’m back in black (and white)!

The mp3 (above) is for reference - it’s based on the three verse version of this psalm. It’s also paraphrased (how dare I?). This verbatim setting has five verses. But you can see how I envisioned it with a band (go Lifeteeners!)

Because I received complaints from someone in the congregation who told our pastor that I was "changing the Word of God" if I at all paraphrased, I started about to reset all of my settings verbatim (even though the pastor told me not to worry about it.)

So I’m going to try to spend the next three years, ’17, ’18, and ’19 getting these all up here verbatim. Alert the media! Tell all your friends! Hold a White House press briefing at Trump Tower!

For the two bucks make as many copies as you need.

God bless you and your ministry!

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.

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.
