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.

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

This peice uses a children’s poem by the famous poet, Vachel Lindsay. The piece was a hit with the judges at the Virginia State contest for childrens choruses. This is the orginial instumentation.The chorus was directed by Mrs. Todd Barnes and she has agreed to answer any questions you may have about rehearsing or performing it. Her E-mail is tbarnes4music@yahoo.com

Later it was orchestrated and the choir sang it with the Northern Neck Symphony Orchestra. It was well recieved and brought alot of people to the concert that would not have otherwise come. It helped the orchestra grow community support. The Marriot Company Foundation executive was in the audience and she gave the orchestra a grant not just for one year but for every year that we applied. However, the MP3 is not of this performance. In making the recording, I took several different children to a recording studio and produced the orchestra sound digitally.
