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

A short meditative piece to be sung during Communion. The melody is adapted from a traditional Bolivian melody - Dulce Jesus Mio. The words are by Exeter (UK) poet Richard Skinner.

The song could perhaps be sung first as a solo, then hummed, then sung in four parts.

Both Christmas and Easter versions are presented on the mp3. The Christmas version was recorded at the 2012 Christmas midnight eucharist at St David’s Church, Exeter. The recording machine was at some distance from the choir, so hardly studio conditions. You can hear movement of the congregation coming for Communion, and some words of administration. The Easter version was recorded by the Langford Singers (Devon, UK) in August 2013.
