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.

This presents Jeremiah Clarke’s "The Prince of Denmark’s March" in the much easier key of B-Flat Major, allowing an amateur trumpet player to double the violin I part. I wrote out the parts here, rather than having Sibelius just transpose the parts from the arrangement in the original key, because in the Sibelius transposition from the original, several of the cello notes go below the cello range. Here I have adjusted those notes within playing range (and smoothed out the cello lines from some of the resultant octave leaps).

Jeremiah Clarke’s "The Prince of Denmark March" is often falsely attributed to Henry Purcell as "Trumpet Voluntary in D" (because the piece was once published among a collection of works including those of Purcell). Jeremiah Clarke (1674-1707) originally wrote this work for harpsichord in 1700 (published in London in 1702). He later adapted it and included it in a suite for wind instruments. I have arranged it here for strings (with optional trumpet doubling the violin I part–the trumpet parts in both C and B-flat, although not listed in the score, are included in the set of instrumental parts). The piece is often requested for weddings. If you like this arrangement, visit my website at: where you will find many more arrangements for string quartet/string orchestra.
