An original song on the theme of Righteousness by Faith, in the Celtic style.

The feel is intimate, as if sung to oneself. My wife thought a quartet arrangement would run roughshod over the feeling, but I was determined to prove her wrong.

The words should guide the rubato and phrasing. Especially do not drag out the last note of inner phrases (eg m. 15), as that destroys the flow. On the phrase "come for me", put the accent on "come", and let the phrase trail off.

As the different voices join the lead on the verse, they should sneak in quitely, gradually filling out the sound.

The dissonance in m. 15 is inspired by Dvorak’s "Going Home" theme.

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.
