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

A bright, fun, tuneful small-scale Cantata of the well-loved fairy tale written for a group of children in 2002 for concert performance or staged. There are four solo parts: The Three Pigs - Bill, Bob and Jen and the biggest part - The Old Wolf. (Bill and Bob can be changed to Jill and Deb and Jen to Ben. The Wolf can be played by either a boy or a girl or even a group of children). The rest of the Cantata is sung by the Chorus which divides into two on occasion. It lasts for approximately 14 minutes. In my version of the story The Three Pigs are very noisy and they disturb the old, grey Wolf who is sleeping. Infuriated by the noise the Pigs are making as they build their houses the Wolf sets out to make them stop the racket but keeps falling asleep. In the end the Wolf is exhausted by his efforts to blow down the House of Bricks and the Pigs take pity on him and decide to build him a home he can retire to. The emphasis is on the Cantata being great fun for the children to sing and perform. The music can be freely interpreted. You can add more solos, divide the chorus as you wish. Staging can be added or not. It works very well in concert with perhaps simple costumes. The Chorus can be Creatures/Trees/Flowers of the Wood if desired. Have fun!
