Originally an eight part motet - Pearsall was a devoted madrigalist and this piece owes a very strong debt to Lotti’s Crucifixus in the use of extensive suspensions and emotive harmony. Suitable for any solemn occassion - e’g Funerals / Good Friday etc.

Alternative parts available for horns to replace trumpets 3 and 4 as well as a seperate tuba part to replace/reinforce the lowest trombone part

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.
