An SATB arrangement of a typical nineteenth-century Austrian yodelling carol (from Steiermark). This is great fun to sing - either at the tempo suggested, so that the words may be savoured, or as fast as the singers wish (perhaps it would be an idea to ’la’ and yodel a fourth verse at speed!) Its joyous leaps and assured major-key tonality make it an utter contrast to the Polish carols on my site. A lovely addition to any carol programme, and one that is hardly known outside its homeland.

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.
