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

I have been so pleased with the feedback I have had from The Lone Ar-ranger! in its original versions. It is still available, but really for sentimental reasons, being the first piece I ever uploaded to the former Sibelius Music.

We’re never too old to take on board any constructive criticisms of our work, so this updated arrangement is now based on the newer solo piano version, which gave me the opportunity to tweak the ending slightly, and include a few new tunes. The very final tune, just before Rossini’s coda, does have a special relevance to a certain Music Notation Programme! - and does seem to provide an appropriately Karelian ’Finnish’!

This update received its first performance at a WarChild Gala Charity Concert at Plymouth City Museum & Art Gallery on Saturday, May 18th, 2002.

Following a number of requests worldwide, I have now uploaded a special non-playing score, which lists, and identifies all the tune fragments used in The Lone Ar-ranger!

See the Related scores for further information.

STOP PRESS: Top UK piano-duo, Anne Applin and Geoffrey Pratley, used The Lone Ar-ranger! as one of their set pieces in October 2012’s duet course at Benslow. I have therefore tidied up a few places, as well as dedicating this slightly-tweaked version to the duo. I do hope the other course-members enjoyed playing it, too!
