This one had its genesis in an unfortunate subway accident involving my third cousin, Mort. He was entering the train when the doors closed on him, neither letting him in or allowing him to get back out. The train left for the next stop and he was buffeted by cinderblocks protruding from the wall of the tunnel. The blocks were unevenly spaced, apparently for artistic reasons. Some hit him in the head, others in the lower abdominal area. He died four hours later in the hospital but not before his four children learned of the mishap and visited his bedside. His wife was there too. Unfortunately, she had never before met any of the children, as they were the product of a soon-to-be discovered liaison between Mort and a Portuguese immigrant who was living cross town in the love nest he financed through funds misappropriated from his job and also (and most unfortunately) from his 401K, thus leaving his lawfully wed wife penniless. She turned to me for help, asking that I write a song and post it on Sibelius and that all proceeds from downloads be given to her to help her get through this emotional and financial disaster. Hence, the present song. Oh, and I dare anyone to find another song that uses the word �uxorious��a word that is highly ironic given the background of this song.

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.
