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.

NOTES A Rosebud By My Early Walk This Robert Burns song, written in 1787, was dedicated to a Miss Jean Cruickshank who was the daughter of the Latin master at the High School of Edinburgh. Jean was only twelve years old when Burns wrote this but she was an accomplished singer who performed Burns' songs while accompanying herself on the piano. O’er The Water To Charlie This melody can be found under many other names, including The Pot Stick, Wishaw’s Delight, Sean Buidhe, Over The Water and Come Boat Me O’er To Charlie. Robert Burns (1759-96) penned the lyrics about Bonnie Prince Charlie and the song was first published in 'The Scots Musical Museum' in 1787. The Banks O’ The Dee According to John Glen (1900) this song was written in 1775 by John Tait, who for some time sat as judge in the Police Court, Edinburgh. It was written on the occasion of the departure from Scotland of his dear friend to join the British forces at the start of the American War of Independence. Although the accompanying tune is thought to be of Irish origin, Glen was unable to find it in any early Irish song collections. It does, however, appear to have been very popular in Scotland, and was used not only to accompany Tait's verses but also two other songs found in Wilson's 'St Cecilia' (1779). It also appears in the first publication of 'The ‘Scots Musical Museum’ (1787-1803).
