I would recommend listening to the mp3, rather than scorch because of the poor ability to handle many instruments.

This is a setting for full brass band, SATB choir and soprano soloist of the well-known Christmas hymn. It is a rhapsodic treatment that explores the meaning of the text.

The opening shows the cold winter landscape and the sudden warming as "The Rose" pushes its way through the snow. The rose is a climbing one and its tendrils wind around each other to support the flower which finally opens fully when the solo soprano enters with the German words.

A developmental section follows, with statements of the original material interspersed with statements of the chorale melody. The music is generally uneasy, with the percussion reminding us of the slaughter of the innocents and events to come, however, the joy of the new birth triumphs with an ’angelic host’ singing the English words "A Great And Mighty Wonder".

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.
