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

In comparison with the first two organ symphonies, the Organ Symphony No. 3 or Symphonie Dorienne is more intimate and contemplative, its musical language being more subdued and harmonically developed. It is a modern-classical composition that consists of four movements. The 1st one is a solemn and moderately fast prelude based on one flowing theme. The 2nd one is a fast gargoylesque scherzo with a singing pastoral middle section, dominated by the Cornets. The 3rd one is a slow and rather sad movement in sonata form with two contrasting themes (a singing main theme and a choral-like one). The 4th and final movement is characterised by the alternation of a slow and solemn episode and a fast twinkling toccata-like theme, that are both further developed. At the end the toccata-like theme returns one last time in a majestic way, and thereafter a moving solo of the Flûte harmonique (joined by the Montre) brings the symphony to its calm conclusion. Registration indications (based upon the Hauptwerk sound set of the Mutin / Cavaillé-Coll organ of the Notre Dame in Metz) are intended as a help and are mainly notated as in late French romantic organ music (Widor, Vierne). In 2016 I have revised the piece, checking every registration indication and every bar and I can assure now that the piece is entirely playable and that it will sound great if you follow my registration indications. The recording (digital performance in Sibelius 5 with Garritan Personal Orchestra, not Hauptwerk, of the former version of 2011 !) gives, besides the registration indications, a scant indication of the sound I want.
