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

The Christmas hymn-tune "Yorkshire" is sometimes called "Stockport" after the town where the composer John Wainwright lived and died, and where it was first sung on Christmas Day in 1750. This arrangement has a vocal descant and uses two trumpets (parts for Bb and C trumpet are included). If you have only one trumpet player, the second trumpet part could be played as a descant to one of the earlier verses (e.g. "He spake, and straightway the celestial choir"). Another option would be to have the last verse played by a trumpet trio, with the vocal descant played by a 3rd trumpeter. The New English Hymnal has different words for the last verse of "Christians, awake". There is a separate file available of this in "Related Scores". Also in "Related Scores" are two other Christmas hymns which I have arranged with trumpets: Iris ("Angels from the realms of glory") and Antioch ("Joy to the world").
