page one of the Trombone 3 part from Christians Awake! (Christmas) - Concert Band

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.

Full details

John Wainwright (1723-1768) was an English church organist and composer who composed the music for the Christmas hymn "Christians Awake, Salute the Happy Morn".

This gentle arrangement is for full concert band based on my flute trio version with piano. After a short introduction by the band- upper woodwinds and horns, more instrumental groups enter on successive repeats with the climax in the 4th verse for the full band: a key change and an addition of a descant line.

There is also an optional piano part which can be printed (Not on the score). If you use this arrangement, please let me know how it goes! Listen to the MP3; it has been recorded with NotePerformer!

Grade = 3.5 Duration = 4:20 mins.
