I wrote this based on the text of Psalm 46, so it not only contains the well-known verse, "Be still…," but also other verses of the psalm as well. I have tried to convey the varying moods of the psalm through the music. The beginning introduction is to rivet one to stop and realize how very little control we really have over what we are doing, even though we think we have a lot. God wants us to stop and realize it is He that is in control, not you or I. This verse flooded into my mind after my cancer diagnosis 10 years ago! He still is saying, "Be still…!"

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.
