Like my hymn tune Newton West Kirby (Stars of the morning, so gloriously bright), this tune was composed about five minutes before the morning service in which it was first sung at St Matthew’s, Bethnal Green, when it became apparent that the tune in the hymn book was not suitable for the congregation. This occasion was the Feast of St Luke (18th October), the music being composed for the words ’Saviour, who didst healing give’ (NEH 194). If the music seems as if it could have been written in another age, that's all well and good! The intention was to produce a tune that was at home in its context.

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.
