Even as the original context of this work was as a gift to a family, it's first performance morphed it from being this to being something performed in church with reflection upon sacred and spiritually trying concerns, but music can be what it needs to be. One of the more delightful aspects of working out this composition was simply going through it at the end and making changes, such as negotiating and reconsidering almost entirely the the transition before the recapitulation and being inspired to let hemiola make its presence felt at the end.

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.
