"Hyfrydol" is one of my favorite hymn tunes. It is used with the text "Come, thou long-expected Jesus" and "Love divine, all loves excelling" among others. The title of this arrangement is from the last line of one of the stanzas of "Come, thou Long Expected Jesus." This arrangement is another for those family fireside hymn-sings: "Hymns at Home". Instruments could be substituted: flutes for recorders, bassoon for cello, piano for harp or harpsichord, mandolin for guitar, etc. The idea is that everyone is involved. And hopefully it is nice to listen too, as well.

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.
