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 Guide

In the mountains, long ago, where the vibrant skies were caressed by the majestic peaks that soared into the heavens, there stood a small village. The Spirit of the mountains had always watched over the village; however something was wrong. On the surface it appeared a peaceful idyll of tranquillity but he had discerned an undercurrent of emptiness, of loneliness, which he could no longer bear to see his people suffer. So one day, one fantastic glorious day, he revealed himself in the only way he knew how.

Some embraced him, some feared him but as he talked, they listened and they learned. He heard their concerns, their fears; he shared in their joys, their loves, their passions and in each situation, earned their respect and love as he spoke words of clarity and wisdom.

When it came time to leave, the discordance which had greeted him was now gone, replaced by a harmonious chorus of praise that is tinged with sadness, as they don’t want him to go. However, after one final talk, the villagers wave farewell and the spirit departs, leaving the village transformed into an oasis of peace and wonder.
