'Requiem Aeternum' was written in May 2000 for my uncle who had recently died. The piece was originally for piano solo in Am. However, when composing the piece I conceived it with the Requiem words in mind. The piece was substantially rewritten and orchestrated in September 2005 for my school orchestra and the choir 'Voices Anon' with its first performance in December 2005. The recording attached is taken from the concert.

To the reviewer below - the piece written for and played by my school orchestra so I feel that your comments on intonation are unjust.

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.
