The organ part of this anthem will require secure technique but the choir parts are relatively simple. Some time ago I read a version of the words but cannot recall where. The lyrics used in the piece are inspired by this imperfect memory although the words and phrases used are frequently found in many sacred pieces. If anyone thinks they recognise any part of the lyrics please let me know and I will be happy to acknowledge this.

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.
