Some years ago, when my Dad got wind that I was writing music, he decided to create a new text that I would set to music. He created his new text, "Alleluia! Christ Is With Us," and gave it to me. Being a grateful and devoted son, I thanked him, took the new text home with me, and promptly forgot all about it. About a year later, my Dad got a new car and offered me his old one. It wasn't a great car, but it was free, and I needed a car. There was just one condition: that I create a new composition based on his text. Well, I really wanted the car, so that's precisely what I did. My Dad, of course, loves this song; he says it's "the next Amazing Grace." I have my doubts, but I guess you can be the judge of that. The car, by the way, is long dead; the song, however, still lives. Oh, Dad, if you find yourself on and see this, be sure to write a review of this song, and be sure to include the phrase, "the next Amazing Grace."

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.
