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.

I’ve started to redo the settings that are paraphrased and make them verbatim. It really seems like there’s a movement toward being true to the text in the Liturgy of the Word - which is a good thing.

I actually had someone complain to the pastor that "the musician changed the word of God." So ever since then I’ve been paranoid to do a paraphrased setting. Which in a way is kind of a shame, because some of the most enduring and widely utilized psalm settings are paraphrased. (Shepherd Me, O God by Marty Haugen comes immediately to mind). So at funerals, are we not supposed to honor the request of the bereaved to have that setting sung, because it’s not verbatim?

I guess the bottom line is that we’re servants to the Lord in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, so we need to be obedient.
