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

My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose - This is a 1794 song in Scots by Robert Burns based on traditional sources. It became popular when Robert Archibald Smith paired it with the tune of Low Down in the Broom in his ‘Scottish Minstrel’ book in 1821. The poet compares his love to a red rose and a sweetly played tune and vows to love his sweetheart till the seas run dry. Also known as A Red, Red Rose.

Wild Mountain Thyme - The lyrics are generally attributed to Francis McPeake, a member of a well known musical family in Belfast, but the melody is Scottish. An early variant of the melody collected by Robert Tannahill (1774–1810) appears in Robert Archibald Smith's ‘Scottish Minstrel’ (1821–24) but it has also been linked vicariously to the traditional airs The Braes o' Bowhether and The Three Carls o' Buchanan. It is a love song about love among the heather and the sweetly perfumed, wild mountain thyme. Also know today as Will Ye Go, Lassie, Go and Purple Heather.

The Rowan Tree - This song associates the rowan with Scotland and was written by Carolina Oliphant, (Lady Nairn, 1766-1845). It first appeared in R.A. Smith’s Scottish Minstrel in 1822. The tune’s origins are unknown.
