Home > Voice + keyboard > Song: Go Lovely Rose

If any excuse is necessary for another setting of this well-known poem, of which there are aleady a number by other composers, it is that when I first came across it and wrote the melody, I had not as yet seen it in any of the many anthologies in which it appears. I first came across it in a little book of poems by Henry Kirke White, who lived from 1785 to 1806. He quoted it and added his own final somewhat sententious stanza, urging the young girl to whom it is addressed, to be virtuous. Needless to say I have not set that verse.

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.
