Translation:

Happy the one who like Ulysses has accomplished a long voyage, Or like the one who conquered the Golden Fleece, And then has returned full of learnings and wisdom, To live with his own kin the rest of his days.

When shall I see, alas, from my little village The chimney smoking, and in which season Shall I see the fence of my little house, Which is for me a kingdom and even far more?

More pleases me the abode built by my forefathers Than the audacious façade of Roman Palaces, More than the hard marble pleases me the fine slate;

More my Gallic Loire than the Latin Tiber; More my small Liré than Mount Palatine, And more than sea air the Angevine mellowness.

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

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

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.
