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 Lone Ar-ranger has been around for some seventeen or so years, and I've made numerous versions of it, for all sorts of combinations, large and small - usually following an email contact from someone looking for a specific, bespoke arrangement.

While I always make arrangements for Wind Quintet, and for Quartets of instruments, like flutes, or clarinets, I'd never produced one for a woodwind quartet as such - Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, and Bassoon.

A short while back, flute expert and teacher, Jill Shepherd from York, contacted me to ask if I would make such an arrangement for her to play.

Whenever I make any arrangement now, I always try to make each one unique in some way or other, and consequently there are a few little tweaks and additions in this new version, particularly in the bassoon part, which haven't all apeared before at the same time.

Note Performer 3 software has recently been updated, and, I think it does a very good job of 'playing' this woodwind version! Hopefully, though, Jill and friends will soon be performing it live, in and around the York area.

Since adding the piece to her Quartet's repertoire, Jill has preferred to play some passages an octave higher where, because her other players are strong, this works well.

I have made specific mention of her suggestions in the Full Score, though the attached mp3 file represents the original part.
