Weihnachtslied - The Wonder of Christmas
The poem by Theodor Storm is very interesting, because it presents a secular and earthy view of Christmas time, which is an uncommon theme for a Christmas carol. It delights in the wonders and miracles of nature rather than taking Christmas to be simply about the birth of Jesus or the sappy commercialism of Santa Claus. It is a very evocative poem, conjuring the sights and smells of snow-laden fir trees bathed in the soft light of a lone star in the night sky. There is a childlike innocence shown in the appreciation of the beauty of nature and this is a reflection on the blindness of many adults to the miraculous things around them.

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:
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.
