Refrains, Acclamations & Hymns for the Assembly - the Downloadable files

How do I view and print .PDF files? 
All music scores published here are in .PDF files (Adobe Portable Document Files).
Though created originally in Finale, available here as .PDF files they can be view and printed with Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader is free software and can be downloaded and installed from: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html. Note: Adobe Reader is also available in versions to download and view .PDF files on the Linux and Macintosh operating systems.

How do I play MP3 music files? 
Windows' Media Player and Apple's QuickTime Player will both play MP3 files. One or both will typically be already installed on most computers. Windows' Media Player is part of Windows' operating system and QuickTime is available at: 
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/ . These reasonably accurate MP3 music files are not recordings, but are generated by Finale from the notation scores, using vocal "Ah"s instead of words for the SAB choral harmonies, and are accompanied with a piano sound patch. Actual tempos used will depend on acoustics, room size and one's musical tastes.

How do I return back to this page? Click on the Back Arrow of your browser to return to this page after listening to an MP3 file. Close (or minimalize) Adobe Reader to return to this page after viewing/printing any score. If your score appears distorted, magnify image to full size. When you print out your score on your printer from Adobe Reader the image should be as sharp and clear as if printed from Finale.
