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.

Baptismal hymn. This is the Piano/Vocal arrangement.

"Covenant Child" was first published in "Psalms, Hymns & Spiritual Songs Volume 1," a Sunday school project from Great Commission Publications (PCA).

"Covenant Child" is included in "Singing the Faith," the 2011 hymnal of Methodists in the UK.

"Covenant Child" has been sung as a vocal solo, as a congregational hymn, by adult choirs and by children’s choirs (who sometimes do sign language as they sing). It has even been used in an adult Sunday school class to teach about baptism.

A hymnal style arrangement of "Covenant Child" (SATB) is also available here on Score Exchange.



Words and music by Mary Rose Jensen

Covenant child, water comes as a sign Of the washing and cleansing renewing your mind. Covenant child, you are claimed as God’s own. You are one of His people. His church is your home.

Covenant child, you are here by God’s grace, By the work of our Savior, Who died in your place. Covenant child, you are living in Christ. Buried with Him in suffering, with Him you will rise

Covenant child, we are praying for you. May you stay close to Jesus in all that you do. Covenant child, grow strong in the faith. Seek after God’s wisdom and walk in His way.
