This setting of Jubilate Deo is a masterpiece of double-choir polyphony, using the choirs singly except for certain passages and of course the finale, 8 bars of which are repeated. This is one of Gabrieli's rhythmically more complex pieces, in a style which his pupil Hassler was quick to adopt, with cross rhythms and syncopations in rapid movement. The cleffing is unusual - TrSMT:ATTB. The top voice would almost surely have been instrumental but is accessible to modern (female) sopranos. Ideal performances will combine voices and suitable instruments, and a part for Cornett or Violin is provided, but there is no reason why mixed choirs should not tackle the work a cappella or with continuo organ.

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.
