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

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

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 piece is dedicated to PATCHED, which is is our local support organisation for people affected by loved ones who are dependent on drugs or alcohol.

When I first joined the PATCHED support group I wanted (needed) to compose a simple melody with words that expressed some of my own feelings at the time. Later, I added more verses using phrases collected from other support group members.

Each year PATCHED holds a day conference for carers and interested professionals. It was suggested that a small group of service-user volunteers could perform my song at our conference, so I made this mixed-ability SAB arrangement with a simple piano accompaniment.

Our brave volunteers met a few times to rehearse. Changes were made to match musical strengths. A guitar was added to support the opening solo (and throughout), and a flute too in some places. These changes do not appear in the score published here. Other groups are encouraged to make their own alterations/additions to match their local situations.

Our eventual conference performance brought a tear to several eyes. I hope that this song will find resonance with performers and audiences across the world, whether or not they themselves care for someone with a substance addiction.
