Home > Choir > Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence (4th C. BYZANTINE-PICARDY) Advent Introit for 4-part mixed voices SATB Choir, a cappella, arr. by Pamela Webb Tubbs

Here is a fresh new a cappella arrangement of the ancient chant of Eucharistic devotion from Habakkuk 2:20, "Let all the earth keep silence before him". In 1906, Ralph Vaughan Williams set the 4th C. Byzantine Greek Liturgy of St. James translation by Gerard Moultrie to the ancient French carol "Picardy" (, a tune named based on the province of France from where it is thought to originate. The tune dates back at least to the 17th century, and was originally used for the folk song "Jésus-Christ s’habille en pauvre," first published in the 1848 collection, "Chansons popularies des provences de France."

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.
