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.

First performed in the UK at the wedding of ex-spicegirl Geri Halliwell and Red Bull F1 boss Christian Horner ( on 15.05.15. My kids think this is cool!

A 2 minute meditative, flowing chorale prelude for organ based on the beautiful hymn tune "Hyfrydol" (used for various hymns, including the "Alleluia, sing to Jesus". An idea for a piece to play before a service or during communion perhaps.

A popular Welsh tune, the melody Hyfrydol was composed by Rowland Hugh Prichard (1811-1887) in 1830 when he was only nineteen. He was a textile worker and an amateur musician. He had a good singing voice and was appointed precentor in Graienyn. Many of his tunes were published in Welsh periodicals.

HYFRYDOL (Welsh for "tuneful" or "pleasant") is often used as the tune for "Love Divine, All Loves Excelling", and "Alleluia! Sing to Jesus".
