2004 marks the Centenary of the founding of my Theological College in Durham UK, and this piece is a little contribution to the celebrations which are going on all year. The atmospheric opening recalls very early morning steps through largely deserted streets to the College chapel, with the cathedral bell in the background. An enthusiastically enlived version of the plainchant "pange lingua" leads on to a unison setting of the Monsell hymn, "Fight the good fight". One verse of "Hark! Hark, my soul, angelic voices ringing" using E.G.Monk's tune in Hymns Ancient and Modern leads into an extended "alleluia" and amen" using the alleluias from the Chorale, "Lasst uns erfreuen".

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.
