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.

This is an extended version of 'Le Bouf Brillante' which is technically more demanding and aimed at the advanced player.

I wanted to write a piece for Bass which had constant forward movement and rhythmic drive. With the theme of England or Britain as the brief, I set about thinking of what to use as the foundation of the idea. The tune 'The Old Roast Beef of England' came to the forefront of my mind. As the idea behind this project is a 'celebration' I thought it would be a good idea to write it in a 'Fanfare' style. The original tune is quite basic so I developed this into what I felt was more representative of the 'Fanfare' idea. As I developed the piece I made reference to the 'Celtic' influences which make up the indigenous culture of Great Britain.

The result is 'Le Boeuf Brillante' an exciting new addition to the Bass repertoire.
