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.

Words by Mary Rose Jensen

God, we come to You in prayer

Seeking help for those in need.

Those whose trials are hard to bear

Are the ones for whom we plead.

Now we lift our cries to You

Knowing that Your power is great

Mighty King of righteous rule

Listen to us as we pray.

God, we ask Your will be done

In the lives of all Your saints

As we pray for suffering ones,

Hear and act on our complaints.

Comfort those whose pain is hard.

Show Your mercy, heal and bless.

Rise according to Your Word.

Demonstrate Your faithfulness.

God who hears and answers prayer

Take all anxious thoughts away.

Lift the burdens and despair.

Grant the hope that leads to praise.

You give peace in darkest nights.

We are in Your constant care.

In Your kingdom all is right

For Your love is always there.

I wrote these new lyrics to help myself in praying. At the time, many family members, neighbors and friends at church were suffering from unemployment and/or medical problems.
