Whenever I watch some kind of international event, like the World Cup, for example, one of the interesting things has been to listen to the various national anthems.

I’ve always disliked our own anthem, which is insipid and uninspiring - perhaps one reason why it’s sung by a few, and then with little patriotic fervour.

Contrast this with the splendid Italian one, clearly in the Verdi mode, and with a typical second section as a Trio, in the sub-dominant key.

For detailed information on the anthem - or the lyrics, if you want to sing-a-long - please follow the link: Inno di Mamelli

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.
