In Humperdinck's fairy-tale opera Hansel and Gretel are lost in the forest and they sing this night prayer before settling down to sleep.I have used both violas and 3rd violins in this arrangement though neither is absolutely indispensable as, for much of the time, they play the same music. This is a wonderful piece for training the players to play quietly, and sweetly, all the time listening to the lovely details in parts other than their own.

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.
