This song has been trying to get out for a LONG time. I wrote the poem about 3/4 years ago - and much of the melody shortly after - I read the poem for my parents' Golden Wedding because it would not cooperate.If someone says it is easy to set your own poems to music - I can tell you it is definitely NOT, unless the words and music come as one! So, after many puzzling attempts to make it into an accompanied solo song it suddenly dawned on me that it actually needed a choir to lift it for the occasion! I have not indicated dynamic. I am usually more of a control freak, but having written both words and music, I wanted to leave something for the performers and I think it will be fairly natural. For that very special occasion bound copies can be ordered from: www.lulu.com/content/5364953 If ordering from lulu and using the economy delivery method, please allow up to 6 weeks delivery! In my experience 7-10 days is about average, but I am still waiting for some books I ordered over 4 weeks ago! If you do perform it please ask me first and I would be extremely grateful for an MP3 recording if possible!

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.
