This is a parody of a Bachian type chorale. There is little regard to chord progression as Bach would have it. I doubt he would have much appreciation for the dissonance as well. Also the instrumentation is certainly not traditional as Mr Bach had no electric instruments or Saxophone. It slides into a post Baroque, Rococo sounding melody at the end. Just ot keep J.S. Bach from being too traumatized, I did avoid parallel fifths and octaves, except in the doubled parts. The wood block taps like a practice room metronome.

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.
