These seven short pieces are settings of the Church of England's "Common Worship" Communion Service. They are designed to be easy to sing, but interestingly different from each other. The congregation, accompanied by organ (or other keyboard instrument), sings the top line of each setting, with an optional SATB choir providing harmonic interest in various forms. The "Lord, have mercy" has a quiet second line forming a kind of angelic echo. In the "Doxology" the congregation and choir are encouraged to ´╗┐sing the first few bars as a two-part round before continuing into the "Amen" section.

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.
