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

The Organ Symphony No. 5 is a modern-classical composition. It consists of five movements. The 1st one is a moderately fast prelude, in which a solemn theme is further developed and alternated with a faster scherzo-like episode. The 2nd one is a moderately slow movement, in which a solemn main theme is alternated with two singing episodes with possibilities to use beautiful solo stops. The 3rd one is a fast scherzo with a minuet as middle section. The 4th one is a slow movement in which a quiet choral-like main theme is alternated with two other singing episodes again with possibilities to use beautiful solo stops. The 5th and final movement is a majestic toccata that must be a joy to play for a skilled organist, and to listen to. Registration indications (based upon the Hauptwerk sound set of the Mutin / Cavaillé-Coll organ of the Notre Dame in Metz) are intended as a help and are mainly notated as in late French romantic organ music (Widor, Vierne)? The composer has checked every registration and every bar and assures the piece is entirely playable. The recording (digital performance in Sibelius 6 with Garritan Personal Orchestra, not Hauptwerk !) gives, besides the registration indications, a scant indication of the sound the composer wants.
