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

Carl Teike—soldier, police officer, and composer of “Old Comrades” and a hundred other marches—was born in Altdamm, Germany in 1864, the son of a blacksmith. He served in a German army band under a resentful bandmaster whose meager talent he eclipsed. When he proffered his new march, “Old Comrades,” to his bandmaster in 1889, he was told to “throw the score in the oven, we have marches enough.” Having already met his service obligation, Teike thus proffered his resignation and was promptly accepted into the police academy.

I have transposed the entire score down a minor second to C major/F major concert, both for timbre and facility. As usual I have also edited the dynamics, articulations, and scoring. If you're playing this for Oktoberfest, remember that "friends don't let friends drink Bud Light!"
