This one I originally set in A, but going up to the sus high D was too much of a strain for my limited cantoring range at 9:15 in the morning, so I transposed it to G.(It's more fun to play in A, in fact I'm sure I'm not the only pianist who loves to play in A: doesn't it fall under the fingers so naturally with those three sharps?!)But in G, the high note is a C. I'll never forget, one of my musical mentors, Don Henderson from Resurrection Church in Ellicott City, MD., once told me that when you write for the liturgy, try to keep the melody from "C to shining C!" And being that most of us aren't gifted tenors, nor are the people in the pews, I think Don is absolutely right. So if you are a gifted tenor, feel free to use the old tranpose button, which is one of the great advantages of Sibelius/Scorch!

By the way, a huge music store around Pennsylvania here, Menchey Music, is closing down their choral music sales department. In their "Inventory Liquidation" advertisement, they site competition from "internet sales outlets" as the primary reason for their closing that section of their store down. Isn't it great how websites like this one have evened the playing field for us?

God bless.

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.
