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.

Routemaster – programme notes

I grew up riding on the most famous of London Bus Routes, the number 15, which utilised the Red Routemaster. It ran from East Ham White Horse to Ladbroke Grove The Eagle through Newham, Tower Hamlets, the City and Oxford Street. The Opening depicts a freshly painted Routemaster standing at the White Horse turning circle, gleaming in the sun. The side drum signifies the engine starting, and the triangle sounds the bell, and away we go. The first solo section depicts the ride through Newham, with a quote from my East Ham Suite indicating the bus is passing Newham Town Hall. The next section depicts the long section along the Commercial Road in the driving rain. It always seemed to rain on that section. A florin waltz section follows, depicting the bus passing Petticoat Lane. A short burst of “O, Sergeant Merrill, is it true?” is a bit of cheat as in its heyday the number 15 did not pass the Tower of London, though it does now. The original theme returns, depicting the bus striding majestically along Fleet Street and Oxford Street towards the route’s finish.
