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.

Westering Home There is some question around this melody being a derivative of a Donegal tune Trasna na dTonna (Across The Waves). The lyrics to Westering Home were written by Hugh Stevenson Robertson (1874-1952) around 1922 and tell of the Bard’s love for his native Islay. As Eilean Mo Chridhe (Isle Of My Heart) the tune can be found in several books before then, including the 'Glendaruel Collection' and 'Scots Guards 1'.

The Waters Of Kylesku A song of homeland and longing in which the singer recalls the beauty of Sutherland "while soldiering in far off foreign lands". The words of the song are generally thought to have been composed by Sutherland water bailiff David Henderson in 1948. The melody is that of a bagpipe tune called Gad Chuimneachadh (Remembering You).

Dark Loch Nagar Also known simply as Loch Na Garr, the lyrics were written in 1807 by George Gordon Byron (Lord Byron, 1788-1824) who titled his poem Lachin Y Gair. He was raised in Aberdeenshire and although he left Aberdeen Grammar School for Harrow at the age of ten, he never forgot his Scottish roots. The melody, on the other hand, is possibly Irish in origin, brought back by Scottish sappers in the 1830's who were sent to County Clare as part of the British survey of the country. Whatever its origins, it became the melody of a popular 19th Century song circulated on broadsheets that made reference to the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Lochnagar is a steep, mountain ridge with four distinct peaks above a loch with the same name in the Cairngorm Mountains.
