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

This arrangement is a transcription of my 2016 recording of "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing." The arrangement is based around a simple but powerful chord sequence, with the first half of each verse holding a pedal point to build tension. The dissonant tension is released in the second half of each verse with the I-vi-IVmaj7-ii7-IVsus2 pattern before returning to the pedal point sequence.

Although written as a piano solo or vocal solo with piano accompaniment, this arrangement can also work for congregational singing with a few small changes. The second and third verses include an extra measure after the third phrase (measures 40 and 62, respectively), which you’ll probably want to omit, and you may want to skip or shorten the interludes between verses.

My performance of this arrangement is available on youtube at http://youtu.be/uD3Xv6CON4s, or visit my youtube channel, http://www.youtube.com/dayzzzed, for this and other songs.
