Carol Mass is a mass with carols and a mass based on carols. The normal Latin mass text is set for choir with well-known carol tunes appearing in every movement (some in disguise). Interspersed are less familiar carol texts set to new music by me. The original accompaniment was for organ and orchestra, but the present arrangement for piano and organ will prove very practicable. There are very small easy parts for soloists who can be members of the choir. There is much variety: styles range from jazzy to contrapuntal

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.
