This is a straight-forward arrangement of Handel's famous chorus from "Judas Maccabeus". While an exuberant expression of praise enjoyed by any choir that sings it, this chorus is frequently passed over as a worship anthem because the original text makes little sense taken out of the context of the oratorio. In this arrangement, I have provided an original introduction in Handeliam style which showcases the organ's reeds, a keyboard-friendly accompaniment based on the original orchestration and a singable, appropriate text of praise that can be used for general worship purposes. The original text of the anthem is also provided so that choirs may have a choice. Happy singing! The purchase price includes the right to make sufficient copies for your choir on a one-time basis.

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.
