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.

Whether Swinburne was genuinely in love with the English language, or whether it was just a lifetime infatuation, I wouldn’t like to say. Either way his verse is a gift for the songwriter, with its long lilting lines of alliterations, interspersed with swirls of internal rhymes, some of which don’t quite rhyme aright. Unfortunately, he seems to have been concentrating so hard on the sound of the words that he sometimes lost sight of the meaning.
This song is based on one of his poems called “Hendecasyllabics”, which I don’t think really means much more than “It’s autumn. Summer is over. Soon it will be winter, and then the weather will be cold and horrible.” That’s probably why he gave it a title that refers to the classical metre he was trying to imitate, rather than the actual subject of the poem: maybe even he didn’t know what it meant. But what an incredibly sonorous way of expressing such a banal idea! I hope you think the musical setting does it justice.
It exists in two versions. This one is for baritone and orchestra (please email me if you would like orchestral parts); the other is for soprano with piano accompaniment.
