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

When a family member was planning her wedding, she wanted a hymn for the congregation to sing. She asked that the lyrics be specifically for a wedding, not general. She also wanted a tune that most people would know. We sang this arrangement and it went very well, even though the congregation numbered only about 10 people.

Purchase of this Piano/Vocal score gives permission for use in a wedding and also gives permission to make multiple copies of a lead sheet for congregational singing. Different versions of the lead sheet are provided, depending on the size needed and whether chords are included.

Note: There are innumerable versions of O WALY WALY. It is a folk song that has been around for hundreds of years. This version is my compilation of my favorite bits from many versions. It is not the same as "Gift of Love," and will not work with arrangements of that tune. This tune is sometimes known as, "The Water is Wide."
