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.

NOTES The Mist-Covered Mountains Of Home  (Chì mi na mòrbheanna) - The song expresses a longing for home.  It was written in 1856 by Highlander John Cameron (Iain Camshroin), a native of Ballachulish who worked in the slate quarries before moving to Glasgow where he became the Bard of the Glasgow Ossianic Society as well as Bard to Clan Cameron. 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 Fuinary.  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 Mingulay Boat Song - Sir Hugh Roberton (1874-1952) was conductor of the famous Orpheus Choir of Glasgow for which he made many choral arrangements of Scots songs. This was one of them published in his ‘Songs Of The Isles’ (1950).  The lyrics were written in the 1930s and added to a segment of an old Gaelic melody, Òran na Comhachaig (the Creag Ghuanach portion) from Brae in Lochaber.  Mingulay is an uninhabited island with high cliffs with nesting seabirds, at the southern end of the Outer Hebrides. Fishermen returning home from the Atlantic would feel that they were nearly home when they sailed past the islands.
