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.

NOTES Loch Rannoch - Originally a slow air reflecting the action of rowing across the loch, this bagpipe tune was composed by Edinburgh-born John Wilson (1906-1979).  Wilson was a renowned piper and teacher who left Scotland in 1949 to settle in Ontario, Canada.   The tune appears in 'John Wilson’s Collection Of Highland Bagpipe Music, Book 1', first published in 1937.   Morag Of Dunvegan - (Mòrag a Dùnbheagain)  This is a popular love song in which the bard tells of his love for Morag from Dunvegan, that he will always be true to her.  The melody is attributed to Neil Matheson with Gaelic words by Catriona Dhughlas (1893-1965) of Skye.  It is also known as A Dunvegan Love Lilt.  Farewell To Fiunary - (Slàn le Fionnairaigh)   Fiunary and Fiunary Forest can be found on the mainland side of the Sound of Mull. Lyrics were penned to this Gaelic air by Norman MacLeod (1783–1862), one of a famous family of ministers from Fiunary.  The song was written in English and translated into Gaelic by Archibald Sinclair.   Farewell to Fiunary was printed in 'Lyra Celtica: An Anthology Of Representative Celtic Poetry', published in 1896. The Skye Boat Song - Originally a Gaelic rowing song, sometimes sung as a lullaby, called Cuachag nan Craobh (The Cuckoo in the Grove).  The lyrics were written by Sir Harry Boulton to an air collected in the 1870s by Anne Campbelle MacLeod (1855–1921) and first published in 'Songs of the North' in 1884.   The song recalls the escape of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) after his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, from Uist to the Isle of Skye, aided by Flora MacDonald.
