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.

The Massacre of Glencoe  (Mort Ghlinne-comhainn) – The song relates to the notorious massacre that took place in Glencoe, known since as  ‘The Glen of Weeping’.  The background to the event was the Campbell/MacDonald feud, which dated back to the 16th Century.   In the winter of 1692, however, the new English king at the time, William III, having demanded that the clans take an oath of loyalty to him that they would not support the dethroned James II, and the MacDonald clan being slow to do this, ordered troops accompanied by elements of the Campbell clan to force the issue.  The company found the MacDonalds in Glencoe, accepted their hospitality for several days before turning on their hosts in the night and butchering over forty in their homes.  Many more died of exposure after fleeing into the surrounding mountains.  It appears in Captain Simon Fraser’s collection ‘The Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles’ (1816).  It is also known as The House of MacDonald and The Ballad of Glencoe.  Played as a pipe march, it is called Colonel Robertson.
