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.

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.

Full details

WILLIAM BOYCE ( b London, bapt. 11 Sept. 1711; d Kensington, 7 Feb.1779 )

The distinguished English composer, organist and scholar William Boyce is also recognised today as the compiler of three volumes of the Cathedral Music, which remained in use almost to the end of the 19th century. He is affectionately regarded among church musicians today as �a father� of English Church Music, but he is also renowned for his works for the Theatre, composing everything from short operas to songs and instrumental music. He received the degree of Mus. D. from Oxford in 1749 and was appointed Master of the King�s Music in 1755 where his duties included being master of King George III�s Orchestra.

William Boyce composed eight anthems in two volumes for the Coronation of King George III on the 22 September 1761. The originals are in score and in Boyce�s own hand, and reside at the Bodleian Library in Oxford. The inscription again in Boyce�s hand is �First Anthem. On the Queen�s Entrance in the West door of the Abbey�. The choristers of Westminster Abbey probably sang the anthem a cappella, as there is no record as to whether the organ was used.

All dynamics, phrasing, and tempi markings in this arrangement are wholly editorial.
