(English version below) Bitte beachten: Dies ist nur die Stimme der Flöte 1. Sie ist so eingerichtet, dass sie sich gut blättern und gut spielen lässt.

Die dritte Seite der Nr. 15 (Hirten-Arie) trägt ebenfalls die Seitenzahl 11. Sie sollte in 11a (oder ähnlich) umbenannt und rechts an die Seite 11, also die zweite Seite der Hirten-Arie, angeklebt und dann ausgeklappt werden, so dass während der rasenden Zweiunddreißigstel-Läufe der Arie nicht geblättert werden muss… Seite 12 folgt dann auf der Rückseite der Seite 11 (nicht 11a!).

This is only the flute 1 part – newly set with special attention to clarity and well-structured layout for easier reading, good page turning and playing.

The third page of no. 15 (Aria of the spepherds) is numbered "11" as well. It should be renamed into "11a". It then could be sticked together with page 11 (the second page of no. 15) and be opened out so that it would not be necessary to turne the page while rushing through the demisemiquavers… Page 12 could then be sticked to the back of page 11 (not 11a!).

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.
