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

William Clayton penned this well-known adaptation of �All is Well� in 1846 to celebrate the birth of his child and to cheer himself and the other Mormon refugees as they travelled from Nauvoo, Illinois to what was to become Winter Quarters, Nebraska. My great-grandfather Henry Herman Ludwig Kotter was introduced to the Mormon church in the early 1860's when he heard a congregation singing this hymn while he was walking down the street in a small Danish town and was known to say in his later years that �we no longer sing �Come, Come, Ye Saints� like we used to.� In an attempt to create a setting that might sound like the one he heard, I have based this version on the setting of �All is Well� found in �The Sacred Harp.� Listeners will note the typical harmonic language of shape-note music, although I have moved the melody to the soprano, with the tenors singing the part originally given to the sopranos (trebles). The only other change is one in tempo, from 4/4 to 6/8, in order to better match Clayton�s words. I hope you enjoy it.
