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

Sìne Bhàn - Also known as Bonnie Jean or Fair Jean, this is a song about a man’s love for his wife and his fear that he won't return to her and their home on Islay as he enlists to fight in the Great War.

My Glen By Loch Leven (Mo Ghleannan Taobh Loch Lìobhainn) - A song praising both the beauty of the glen and the friendliness of the hard-working folk who live there. Also known simply as Loch Leven, the loch in question is the stretch of water in Argyll.

Heather Island (Eilean Fraoich) - This song was written by William Mackenzie (1857-1907). He tells of sailing across the sea to Quebec when the girl he had fallen in love with died. His heart, however, is still back home on his dear Island of Lewis.

Leaving Lismore (Fàgail Lios Mhòr) - This song typically reflects the sentiments of someone leaving the land of his youth forever to make a better future overseas. The sadness of the situation is reflected in memories of his youth and the description of well-known landmarks disappearing from sight. Also known as Lismore No More.
