This is the first of ’Three Hymns to Our Lady’: new tunes for well-known Marian hymns.

The music, composed in 1997, is dedicated to my friend The Reverend Timothy Hunt who was, at the time of composition, Curate of the Parish of St David in Exeter.

This hymn-tune may be downloaded free of charge. If you sing it in your church, please be so kind as to let me know by email.

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.
