This hymn tune is a work in progress. The initial idea came to me this morning in an idle moment. My original thought was for a male voice choir, but now I’m not so sure.

I tried to make the parts as simple as possible, while keeping some melodic and harmonic interest. The first verse has unison lower voices for the first phrase and the second verse uses more adventurous harmony. I have now added a third verse!

With a huge thank you to the reviewers, I am looking into the flaws you mentioned. Watch this space (but not too closely).

OK, is this better? [Edit:2009/08/30 Another revision, corrections to some of the harmony etc.]

I have, hopefully, improved this piece. Any further comments would be appreciated.

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.
