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.

A metrical psalm; the words are a paraphrase of Psalm 139. This would be a good hymn for Sanctity of Life Sunday.
The writer of the tune is thought to be American William Walker, who collected melodies from southern Appalachia and camp meetings. He is best known for compiling the shape-note tunebook "The Southern Harmony," first published in 1835. The original anonymous lyrics are rather bizarre and are the source of the tune name, COMPLAINER. http://www.ccel.org/ccel/walker/harmony/files/hymn/Complainer.html
July, 2010: It took me a while to get around to finishing the paraphrase of the rest of this Psalm. For one thing, it was already too long, and I figured no one would sing 7 verses, much less 9. And there was that imprecatory section. But now it’s complete, just in case it could be useful.
