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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

The piece is the Overture to Act II of ’King Eldred’, an opera for children. The piece is intended to accompany the sight of a group of children dancing.
The opening two bars, for clarinets, recall the trumpet fanfare at the start of the Overture to Act I (also downloadable from Charles McCreery’s Sibeliusmusic page).
The present version of the score of ’Country Dance’ was arranged for an orchestra which only had one trumpet player, so the second trumpet part in bars 3-4 was given to one of the clarinets. If two trumpets are available both parts in bars 3-4 should be taken by muted trumpets. This second phrase should sound like an echo, at a distance, of the opening phrase.
’Charles McCreerys beautifully melodic, intricately textured compositions are infused with classical, romantic and folk idioms.’ Samantha Gillogly, violinist
