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

Pavel Grigorievich Chesnokov (transliterated Tschesnokoff, Tchesnokov, Tchesnokoff, or Chesnokoff) was a Russian Empire and Soviet composer, choral conductor and teacher. Salvation is Created is a communion hymn based on a Kievan syndonal chant melody, with text based on Psalm 74:12 (For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.) Although it is not directly related to any Messianic prophecies, the text does remind us that God is the creator of salvation, which is offered to us through the advent, birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. ¶ By the age of 30, Chesnokov had completed nearly four hundred sacred choral works, but his proliferation of church music came to a standstill at the time of the Russian revolution. Communist rulers prohibited musicians and other artists from producing any form of sacred art. Salvation is Created was among the very last sacred works composed before Chesnokov was forced to turn to secular arts by the Soviet government. He never heard his composition performed. Under USSR-imposed state atheism, many church institutions were systematically destroyed. Chesnokov served as choirmaster at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, Czar Nicholas’ great memorial to Russia’s having survived attack from Napolean. In 1931, when Stalin demolished the Cathedral to reclaim tons of gold in the edifice and make room for a memorial to Lenin, Chesnokov was so deeply disturbed that he stopped writing music altogether. Chesnokov died in 1944. Most source information from Wikipedia.
