Choir + orchestra

This year I re-joined the Akron Symphony Chorus and met fellow bass singer, and now good friend, Henry Payden, Jr. While discussing our common musical interests Henry mentioned that he had written a song that he wished to have arranged for orchestra and soloist. After listening to his self-recorded version I felt that it was the perfect vehicle for a large-scale orchestral arrangement, including choir. I was kindly encouraged by Henry to use my creativity and the full resources of the orchestra in setting his song, for example, he didn't object to my adding an extended original introduction, giving the choir and soloist additional lyrics to sing, changing chord voicings, etc. This unselfish attitude toward one of his "musical children" enabled me to "paint" different, imaginative views of his offering of praise and worship to our mutual Lord.

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.
