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 was written for the Harrogate Male Voice Choir, (in Yorkshire, England). Since adding it to the repertoire, we find that it’s a very popular number and is especially effective at the end of concerts as the audience can always join in if they wish.

This is such a well-known folk hymn that no introduction is really necessary , except to include a record of its origins. The words of the first four verses were written by the English poet and clergyman, John Newton, for a New Year’s Day sermon in 1773. The fifth verse is anonymous. At first, the poem was sung to a range of different tunes, but the hymn melody, "New Britain", was firmly adopted by 1835.

Male voice choirs intending to perform this arrangement are strongly advised to keep to the given tempo, thus allowing each phrase to be sung without a breath in the middle.

The sample audio track is a virtual performance by the Sibelius software.

Those who purchase a copy and would also like to have the learning tracks (f.o.c.) should contact the arranger by email.
