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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

Full details

I fear that this exquisite hymn has been expunged from hymn books on the grounds that it is too ’Victorian’. What a shame! Anyway, I hope that, if you are lucky enough still to use Hymns Ancient and Modern Revised, you will enjoy singing/playing this arrangement. The melody is in the left hand part.

It is possible to perform this arrangement in two ways:

Either/

with the sopranos singing the descant, the rest of the choir and the congregation singing the melody, and the organ playing the accompaniment

Or/

with all the singers singing the melody and the organ playing the accompaniment.

If you use it, please be so kind as to let me know by email as I like to keep a track of when and where my works are performed.

Do have a look at my other hymn arrangements and original hymn tunes on this site. I welcome commissions for arrangements, as well as for original compositions.
