Here’s a simple and easy-to-play arrangement of "Silent Night"–the most popular Christmas carol of all time–for solo piano, complete with lyrics, chord names, and pedal marks. Many arrangements of this famous carol are available in B flat and C major, while some have the melody in A or A flat major, but few arrangements have the music in B major as you see here. That's a shame because the carol sounds absolutely beautiful in this key! (This arrangement can also be transposed into other keys, or played an octave higher than written if desired.)

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.
