Ambassadors for Christ was commissioned by Canon John Watts to celebrate his silver jubilee since his ordination as a priest in the Catholic Church. The text set was the text printed on Canon John's orginal ordination card. It was first performed by The Holy Innocent's Church Choir at Holy Innocent Church, Strickland Way, Orpington, Kent on 20 July 1997. At this time the choir lacked strength in the tenor and bass sections (as do most churches) so the motet is for soprano, alto and bass voices. However the bass part does split at a couple of points in which case those choirs fortunate enough to have some tenors, the tenors should take the upper 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.
