This is a very effective anthem for Lent, Holy Week, or any Communion Service combining two shorter works, an austere Palistrina motet and Sir John Goss's familiar "O Savior of the World. The English words from the traditional Anglican prayer for visitation of the sick are substituted for Palistrina's "Adoramus Te" text and Goss's orginal key is moved up a half step to A major. In addition, suggestions for dynamics are included as is an enriched organ accompaniment. Especially stunning if the choir can sing the first 34 measures unaccompanied. Price includes authorization to make sufficient number of copies for your choir.

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.
