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.

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

This tune is found in the 1888 songbook, "The Songs and Hymns of the Scottish Highlands." That book is also the source of the popular tune that is associated with the lyrics, "Child in a Manger" and "Morning Has Broken" (BUNESSAN). There were originally 26 verses of lyrics with this tune, LA BHREITHEANAIS, all in Gaelic and on the topic of God’s judgment. Only 4 were translated into English in the songbook. I could find no clue as to the composer of this tune, but the lyricist was known to use folk songs. Apparently the favorite topics for Scottish songs at that time were sin, death and judgment. My lyrics are on a similar topic, but not derived from the lyrics in the songbook. I was writing for a contest and based my lyrics on the lectionary texts indicated in the contest rules (Series A, Proper 28). My hymn did not win, so it is now posted to Score Exchange.
