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.

Petites Scènes d’Edna replaces a planned series of airs for bass voice based on texts by Edna St. Vincent Millay. The poetry is under copyright protection and cannot be used without permission. And to be quite frank, I grew weary trying to get approval to use the texts. With hindsight I believe the current work is better served by the violoncello. The poems are a set of 5 whose subject matter is attributed to the early 20th century murder trial of Sacco & Vanzetti (as per analyses available publicly). The work herewith draws inspiration from a sub-set of those poems (noted in the score).

The mp3 though computer generated is a better listening choice.

NOTE: for sales to continue to be viable for the independent publisher with ScoreExchange’s ’multiple print for one price’ sales policy, we have had to increase our asking price. We will continue to offer discounted pricing offline. Feel free to contact the publisher directly with your requests.
