The origins of this style stem from my teenage years as organist at the local church. It has a simple verse and chorus form, with the chorus serving as the work’s anchor. The subtitle "The Minute Hymn" arises not because it is very small but because, at the quoted metronome mark, each verse is exactly one minute long. Any suggestions for the lyrics? If you're interested the verse is approximately 12 11 12 11 followed by a chorus of 11 13 10 12 though the exact number of syllables can be varied.

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

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

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.
