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.

Some time back, I was emailed by Toronto trumpeter, Chris Kemp, who wrote: ’I was wondering if it would be possible to obtain a version of ’The Lone Ar-ranger!’ arranged for 5 trumpets. I’m in the process of putting together a trumpet ensemble and your composition would suit us perfectly!’ I was able to oblige Chris at the time, who shortly hopes to record the piece.
When Chris more recently emailed to tell me about the possible recording, he also asked me if I could do two more arrangements of other works of mine for him - Samba..alla Turca! and Five-note Disco, which I have now completed.
Chris’s experience encompasses a wide variety of settings and styles including musical theatre, recording studios, television, club and stage performances throughout North America. Currently, Chris is the private brass instructor at Montcrest School in Toronto, leads the twenty-piece Big Smoke Big Band and is a member of the Chase tribute band Primal Therapy.
The arrangement, of course, also fits an ensemble of five Bb clarinets - unlike the existing choir and ensemble versions which really need the bass and Eb instruments. While Trumpets 1-4 are identical with the Clarinet parts, with Clarinet 5, the availability of the low D, does allow for a slightly better bass line, where the lowest sounding note of the normal Bb Trumpet is E. Therefore Clarinet 5 cannot be played as such by Trumpet 5.
However, Chris has an even better solution, in that he uses a Four-valve Flugelhorn for the bottom line. Apart from an added richness, its compass is similar to the clarinet, thus providing a welcome few extra notes at the bottom of the range. The part for Clarinet 5 / 4-valve Flugelhorn are interchangeable.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
