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

Made by a retired professional musician who was both a first rate organist and brass player, this transcription of probably the most well known organ show piece ever written is a virtuoso transcription for only the most out standing brass players. Virtually every instrument is taxed to the limit both in note range and rhythmically. Things are not easy for the conductor either, as it was never written to be conducted - hint it is easier to think of the piece in 8/8 rather than 4/4. To make things slightly more comfortable (but not much!) for the players it has been transposed down a tone - so it really becomes toccata and fugue in C minor! To help bands try this transcription, the parts and score have been priced low, and do listen to the mp3 file to get an idea of how it all fits together and sounds - sorry it is not an actual recording, only sampled digital sounds - but the effect is still stunning - especially with the Hi-Fi volume turned up. Alternative bass clef parts are also available as required for the lower instruments.
