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.

Full details

This is a much revised reprint of a setting of ’New Prince, New Pompe’, by the Catholic poet and martyr Robert Southwell (d.1595), which I originally wrote for Theo Saunders Esq FRCO, and the School Choir of Exeter Cathedral School in 1984. (The original was published by Westerleigh Publications, Lustleigh, S. Devon, UK, but is now out of print, and the present revised edition appears with permission.)

There are three verses in four-part harmony (unaccompanied), with the fourth verse set as a Descant, with unison voices and organ (or piano) accompaniment.

When a keyboard is not available, however, or when performers prefer it, the entire piece may be performed unaccompanied by singing the fourth verse either: 1) to the same SATB music as used for vv. 1-3; or 2) to the new, five-part setting for voices incorporating the soprano Descant with the main tune in the Tenor.

[Please note that the MP3 recording which accompanies this score on the website does NOT include the five-part verse setting.]
