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 Tuireadh Iain Ruaidh  (Lament For Red Iain) - A lament in which a woman is mourning the death of her beloved.  She bemoans the fact that the sun no longer appears in the sky and that she is now without friendship, without love, and without protection.  The melody is based on part of a pibroch believed to date from the mid-18th Century.   The Gaelic lyrics were added later by Scottish poet Edward Pursell (1891-1964).  Pursell was born in Campbeltown in Argyll and was a primary school headmaster, an artist, author and Gaelic educationalist.  The ‘red’ in the title refers to Iain’s red hair. Far An Robh Mi'n Raoir  (Where I Was Last Night) - A man reflects on his tryst in an idyllic wooded glen the previous night, with his love.  The words are by Niall MacLeòid (1843-1913) who was born in Glendale, Skye, a son of the poet Domhnall MacLeòid, (Domhnall nan Oran).  He gained early popularity as a poet in his own right and in 1883 saw the first edition published of an anthology of his work, ‘Clàrsach an Doire’. Òran Na Maighdinn-mhara  (Song of the Mermaid)  - A melancholy song of bitterness, anger and betrayal when a mermaid, or ’kelpie' - a magical seal-like creature, comes ashore and takes off her seal skin to explore the beach, but is then entrapped into a relationship with a human when her skin is stolen and hidden away. She dreams of one day finding her seal skin and returning to the rich and wondrous realm of the sea.
