This Piece is inspired by the Native American legend of Hummingbird and how he recovered tobacco for all the world:

Long ago, when men and animals spoke the same language, there was only one tobacco plant in the world. Goose wanted this tobacco all to himself and so he stole the plant. The men and animals called a great council to discuss how to get the tobacco back from Goose.

Hummingbird voluntered to retrieve the plant, and the man and animals said, "You are far too small. Goose will eat you!" But Hummingbird was adamant and so they agreed to let him try.

When he encountered Goose, Hummingbird flew so fast that Goose could not see him. He reached the tobbaco plant and snagged a single sprig, which he brought back to the men and animals. The sprig was planted and afterwards all men had tobacco

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.
