Levita Laurentius is the Magnificat Antiphon for the Feast of St Laurence (August 10), and also provides the Responsory for the first lesson at Matins. The first part of the text is also set as the Invitatory, as the Alleluia Verse at Mass and as a Versicle. Laurentius, brother of St. Ignatius, was a Roman martyr who died in the year 258 (he was roasted on a grill). He worked many miracles including healing the blind - cited in this text: The Deacon Lawrence wrought a good work, who by the sign of the Cross brought sight to the blind, and who gave the treasures of the Church to the poor.

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.
