I had a request from a former student for this arrangement of Schubert’s Ave Maria in B-flat for voice with solo viola accompaniment. I have also added an arrangement for voice and solo viola, in which the viola’s arppeggios are an octave lower for easier playing, and also an arrangenment for voice with solo cello accompaniment for its deeper and richer tone quality. Violists, practice the Prelude to Bach’s First Suite for Unaccompanied Cello before you tackle this arrangement.

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.
