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.

The Lord�s Prayer (Pater Noster)

Arguably the best-known and central prayer in Christianity is the Lord�s Prayer, which is also known as the Pater Noster or Our Father. It appears in two forms of the New Testament in the Christian Bible: in Matthew�s Gospel as part of the discourse on ostentation during the Sermon on the Mount and also in the Gospel of Luke by Jesus in answer to a question by one of his disciples to instruct them on how they should pray to the Father. In some of Matthew�s manuscripts Christians, particularly Protestants, conclude the prayer with a doxology or addendum. There are several different English translations of the Lord�s Prayer from the Greek or Latin. One of the first texts in English is the Northumbrian translation from about 650 and the translation in the 1662 Anglican Book of Common Prayer (BCP) of the Church of England follow this version which is based on the text in Matthew, rather than Luke, of the prayer given by Jesus. This setting of the Lord�s Prayer would be suitable for any church act of worship or use including weddings, quiet devotion, celebrations and high occasions, funerals, memorials and requiems.
