These two piano movements, written in 1987, are entitled Inner Being and Outer Being and are short meditations.

The first Reflection or meditation starts with ’mystic chords’ which express our inner spirituality. This alternates with an eastern-style melody which expresses the need for greater tolerance between people of different cultures. The one reinforces the other and ultimately leads to a more peaceful existence.

The second movement reflects on the outer beauty of ourselves and the world in which we live. The two alternating sections may therefore be interpreted as:

- a meditation on the wonders and beauty of our natural world, and - a prayer that mankind might preserve it.

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.
