The Alleluja from Mozart’s motet "Exultate, jubilate", K. 165, was written in 1773 in Milan, Italy, for the famous castrato Venancio Rauzzini. It was scored for high voice, two oboes, two horns, strings and organ. I have reduced the score string quartet. Most of the string parts are pretty much as Mozart wrote them with the exception of a few spots to cover the missing oboes and the spots where the soloist is independent of the original first violin part. (There is another version on my web site for strring quartet and soprano when the string quartet is called upon to provide the accompaniment.) The Alleluja has often been requested at weddings. If you enjoy it, check out my more than 70 arrangements (mainly for string quartet) and compositions below, or visit my web site at: http://members.sibeliusmusic.com/jjacklich/

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

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

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.
