This is a selection from my "Common Mass" arranged for one voice and keyboard accompanyment. I did this because the hymn proved to be very popular after it's first proformence at christ the king church, and other cantors, (for all of the non-catholics out there cantors are people who are designated to lead the singing at a mass) wanted to use it, and that lead to this. The recording featured Mark Bruce as the vocalist. I told him to bring it down an octave, but you can do what ever you want with it. For the keyboard accompanyment I played the melody (not in octaves as designated in the score) using the chords to create the bass arpeggios. You can do what ever you want on the piano part too. This song tends to mold very well.

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.
