Like my original hymn tunes "Polperro" and "Sain Ffagan" (both SATB) this SSA setting of John B. Dykes’s familiar tune with Reginald Heber’s text originated during my undergraduate days as an assignment - in this case, a first effort in a choral arranging class, in 1970. I copyrighted it in 1978, along with several other works, under the title _Lenten and Easter Miscellany_, for the purpose of its being used as an unaccompanied choral prelude to my setting of "Come, Ye Faithful, Raise the Strain" (tune: "Sain Ffagan," at this site), with the latter serving as an Easter Introit. "Holy, Holy, Holy," of course, can be used for general worship as well as for special days within the Church Year.

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.
