Which brings us to August of 2011 more than four and a half years and three versions of Sibelius after starting Morning Prayer I have decided to share with you a 98 percent finished Morning Prayer and a very Raw recording of it. Be warned; it is 39 minutes of self indulgent navel gazing.


Darkness all around me; I awaken slowly from a dream that I do not remember.

Morning Prayer:

In the pre-dawn darkness I begin to pray.


I wander through a barren landscape in search of something I have forgotten. A name eludes me, a question unformed.

Dream Time:

I fall into a dream; paths merge and diverge, the past and the future converge, merge and diverge. A truth (The Truth?) lies just beyond my consciousness.


A repressed memory strikes like lighting, heralding the arrival of dark visions. Is this madness?


The sound of dancing drives the darkness away. In the center of a village I dance under a pagan equatorial sun.


Exhausted I fall to the ground and begin to dream


In the pre-dawn darkness I awaken slowly from a dream I do not remember.

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.
