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

This piece can be performed with solo singers using mics or a larger choral group; it was originally written for three female voices and one male voice (the female voices all being quite low). The 2nd alto part could be taken by a tenor. The lower three vocal parts could be omitted but they add much to the texture. The guitar could be omitted from the rhythm section and the sax parts are identical i.e. it can be played on either alto or tenor sax. Feel free to duplicate vocal parts after purchase. Drop me a line if you want the whole thing in a different (probably higher) key. The recording was made at a wedding (thus the congregational singing) and the band has unintentionally picked up the pace a bit part way through….. but it should give you the general idea.

You will NOT need all of the parts - check the score carefully to decide which parts are most suitable for your group; eg, you can select piano with lead vocal or male vocal, drums with or without lead, alto OR tenor sax etc.
