"Goin Home", the spiritual based on the Second Movement of Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 ("From the New World") has often been requested at funerals. It is probably second only to "Amazing Grace" for that solemn occasion. This arrangement of the entire second movement remains faithful as much as possible to the original orchestral parts, save where the parts must be rewritten to cover missing instruments. I have another arrangement of this same piece posted in the easier key of D Major.

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.
