Franz Schubert’s Ave Maria is often requested for weddings and funerals. This version features the cello as soloist. It can be played with a variety of instrumental and vocal combinations: string quartet (with the cello as soloist); voice and string quartet; voice, two violins and viola; piano quintet; voice and piano quintet; voice, piano, two violins and viola; cello and piano; and voice and piano. Two other versions of this, one featuring the violin as soloist, and the other featuring the viola as soloist, are also available on my website.

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.
