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.

Full details

A Canadian Folk Journey incorporates phrases of the Canadian National Anthem, O Canada, and folk songs from various regions of Canada, starting with "Land of the Silver Birch" (a song written by a Canadian First Nation poet), "The Maple Leaf Forever", (reminding us of the flag and the colours of Quebec and Ontario), and then our cross-country trip starts on the east coast with "Lots of Fish in Bonavist Harbour", "I’se the Bye that Builds the Boat", and "Farewell to Nova Scotia". "Vive La Canadienne" represents Quebec, "The Red River Valley" from Manitoba, "Bury Me Not on the Lone Prairie" from Saskatchewan and Alberta, "Far from Home" from British Columbia, and landing up on Canada’s north with the song "Klondijk!" from the Yukon. This piece would be a great addition for any recorder group celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. The Great Bass part is optional, as it simply duplicates the Bass part, however, it is in the treble clef, perhaps making it more accessible for some players.
