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

I first met DMC when he was age 14. He did not have an easy life. At age 35, he was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Sadly, he passed away a few months later. I realised I was dwelling on the sadness of losing him rather than the happier times we spent. I wrote this song to try to square things in my own head. The lyrics are what I imagine he would be saying to me now, after his passing.

This song may also find resonance with others who are prematurely bereaved. Here are the lyrics (which could be read out as a poem):


Remember me. Let me be gone - not forgotten. My flame preserve in memory true. Remember me joyfully. In all the empathy That I’d remember you, Remember me.

Remember me In our familiar places, That bring to mind the good time we shared. The things we did aren’t undone, Can be re-lived by one, You still may reach me there: Remember me.

You cared for me and you stood by me And bore me up under cloud and through rain. And when by chance we found a sunbeam, We’d end up laughing again and again (and again).

And from my rocky pathway Beside your golden road It wasn’t always easy To fully bear the load. So now at last I am released from the heartache: There’s no more pain And there’s no more fear.

And so dear friend, one request: When I am laid to rest Still hold me dear, Don’t forget me.

Remember me. Let me be gone - not forgotten. My flame preserve in memory true. Remember me joyfully, In all the empathy That I’d remember you. Remember me. Remember me, please Remember me.
