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.

Remembering Jesus’ death is an important part of my church’s worship activities and we do this each week as we take the bread and wine. On one particular occasion, the leader mentioned Jesus dying “in my place” and those words became very real to me as I thought about this further over the coming weeks. Jesus, as a perfect man, was the only person who could become my substitute and die in my place, taking on the full wrath of God’s judgement that my sin deserved. Romans 5:1-2 states: “By faith we have been made acceptable to God. And now, because of our Lord Jesus Christ, we live at peace with God. Christ has also introduced us to God’s undeserved kindness on which we take our stand. So we are happy, as we look forward to sharing in the glory of God.”

The first 2 verses concentrate on what Jesus did for us by dying in our place. What he’s done for each of us should change the way we live our lives and how we show our gratitude to him. The chorus of the song brings out that we should rejoice in the fact we have forgiveness, we are now fully adopted children in God’s family (there are no longer barriers of sin) and that our gratitude should result in freely giving our earthly lives in full service to Jesus as our worship to him. The third verse focuses on the benefits we don’t deserve because of God’s grace.

I completed this song just before Easter 2011 and sung it first with a congregation on Easter Sunday.
