A setting of a sciptural text suitable for Good Friday or Holy Saturday. The soprano, alto and tenor parts are quite complex - the tonality is fairly chromatic. However, the piece is underpinned by a constant G drone in the bass part. To that extent, the piece is vaguely modelled on John Taverner's Song for Athene. Any choir capable of singing that piece could certainly do justice to this one.

Buying a score entitles the purchaser to make a set of copies for their own choir.

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.
