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

This work combines text from the normal Latin Requiem text with poetry of John Keats, Robert Bridges and Walt Whitman. It's not a dramatic work instead it's a lyrical and gentle almost a lullaby. It's not about the horrors of death it's more a celebration of the person who has died. The central movement "The Dove" is a symbol of the individual that has died this is further made apparent by it being the only movement which just the soloist sings alone, the choir remains silent throughout. Then the fifth movement reminds us in a jubilant style that while the individual has died they still live within us, as we will always remember them.
The work is scored for mezzo-soprano soloist, SATB choir and small orchestra of 2 flutes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, timp, harp and strings. The first performance was given on 4 December 2004 by the John Ruskin Choral Society, The Ruskin Sinfonia (leader Ian Butterworth), Tracey Bacon (mezzo-soprano) with the composer conducting at St Francis of Assisi Church, Ravenswood Avenue, West Wickham, Kent.
