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.

This tune, WEXFORD CAROL, is an old Irish favorite, possibly going back as far as the 12th century. It is often used with the Christmas lyrics that begin "Good people all, this Christmastime." The tune is also sometimes known as ENNISCORTHY CAROL (from the town in County Wexford where it was found and transcribed from a local singer by William Grattan Flood (1859 - 1928), who was organist and musical director at St. Aidan’s Cathedral in Enniscorthy). It became more widely known after inclusion in "The Oxford Book of Carols."
"God Promised a Son" is a new text, suitable for Advent or when any of the related scriptures are being used. It has been especially useful for "Lessons and Carols" services. It tells the story of two of the many miraculous births that point to the the ultimate miraculous birth - that of Jesus Christ.
The transpose button is enabled in case you’d like this in another key, e.g. lower a half step to the key of D for easier guitar chords or a step higher so the first note isn't so low.
I have also posted a simple piano/vocal arrangement of this carol, as well as a choral anthem here on Score Exchange. See above related scores for those and other Advent scores.
