The well-known, and beautiful, Austro-German carol, here available in a non-copyright arrangement for 4-part choir. The hummed parts can easily be adapted to the words of vv. 1 and 2 if reqired, though a soft treble/soprano line supported by humming suits the words best, as does the full setting I have provided for verse 3. The first note of bar 2 (dotted minim E) is usually sung in Austria as a crotchet, with the quavers immeditaely following on. I have, however, heard it sung as in my arrangement, which seems to suit the mood of the words at least as well, if not better.

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.
