:023 Opus: Love Come Among Us


Setting of text provided for the 2005 carol competition sponsored by the St. Martin-In-The-Fields & BBC4, a work I enjoyed writing and which I enjoy continually tweaking (apologies to all who may have taken previous copies).

The original concept was for an SATB work with optional congregation participation. I’d later determined the work to function better in a unison setting (as expressed in the part marked congregation), with the choir optional. The unison melody is well suited as an anthem for all voices. The score includes all parts while the mp3 playback expresses the current version - unison voices (though the very ending does include the choir voice parts).

The mp3 playback is simply a digital representation using the GPO Baroque Plenum patches. A judicious organist will recognized a need to be more creating when choosing registrations . . .

the posting includes the text as SMITF has stated it is permissible to use it in any performance

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.
