Garry Stewart wrote the text of Loves Fidelite as wedding present to celebrate my wedding to his sister, Leonie. In the music I have tried to capture the ardour and passion of Garry’s poetry. The ’senza misura’ passages should be sung somewhere between how you would sing plainchant and Aglican metrical psalms, letting the words guide the phrasing. None of the tempi should be too rigid. Loves Fidelitie was first performed in April 2000 by the Chamber Choir of George Watson’s College, directed by Norman Mitchell.

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.
