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

This "little German Cantata" was composed by Mozart in 1791. The text is by Franz Heinrich Ziegenhagen, an industrialist who wished to found a colony devoted to idealistic living, and was written as a supplement to his brochure. The words speak of pacifism, of universal brotherhood, with an oblique reference to naturism! All of which reflected the liberal philosophy of the time, with which Mozart would have come into contact as a member of a Viennese Masonic Lodge.

Originally composed for soprano and piano this work was orchestrated for strings in the early 1940’s but this arrangement is now believed lost during the bombing of Dresden. I made this arrangement for a concert given on 29 March 2003 at St George’s Church, Beckenham, Kent given by the Bromley Oecumenical Singers Concert Orchestra, soprano Julia Raeburn conducted by Richard Apsley. Although written with a string orchestra in mind it can be performed by either just string quintet or string quartet.
