Blood was on the Crown of Thorns (MARIA DURCH EIN DORNWALD GING) Good Friday Hymn

Hymn for Good Friday that lists many of the events that occurred as Jesus was crucified. Tune is a medieval German Christmas carol, MARIA DURCH EIN DORNWALD GING, (Maria Walks Amid the Thorn) which I have altered in a few places.

"Blood was on the Crown of Thorns" is included in the 2008 hymnal called "Singing the New Testament" published jointly by Calvin Institute of Christian Worship and Faith Alive Christian Resources. The hymnal can be purchased here: http://worship.calvin.edu/resources/publications/singing-the-new-testament

This hymn is being sung during Lent by an English choir at a Cathedral in Beijing, China.

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.
