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 was written originally for a secondary-school recorder group and piano, but has been re-scored for flute ensemble. It has been recorded in its wind band configuration, where both score, parts and CD are available from Editions Marc Reift.

I have recently made a number of arrangements of it for smaller ensembles, without the piano, which has been an interesting challenge, especially in versions for wind quartet. As before, when reworking older material, I have used the opportunity to add extra counter-melodies, made slight harmonic adjustments and, of course, changed the key to suit the various instrumental combinations.

An optional drum part /guide is included with each set of parts.

To make things as flexible as possible, I have also included an alternative flute part (where no piccolo is available), and an alto flute part (where no bass flute is present). These should work fairly well though are, of course, subject to some slight octave transpositions at times, to accommodate the different ranges.

N.B. In the present economic climate, a good number of smaller ensembles understandably buy just the set of parts as, in reality, these alone are all that is needed in performance. Equally, a similar number buy both the parts and the full score. To compensate for this, I intend to reduce the cost of the full score by $4, and increase the price of the lead part by $3, a differential that wasn’t available to sellers at the former SibeliusMusic.com.
