Winter Nocturn over a Frozen Pond

The cuticle moon holds hover in a wintral midnight sky, The blueness dark, all a-shimmer as frost upon the rhyme. This piece shimmers with the bitter cold is is meant to portray. I rewrote this during the hard winter of 2009-2010 in temperatures plummeting as low as minus 19C while I was snowed into my rented bungalow in Yorkshire with food stocks running out with no possibility of a delivery until the weather conditions eased. I originally wrote it in 1the equally hard winter of 1982 when temperatures plummeted as low as minus 25C hence the wintry imagery.

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, 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 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.
