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 Mo Ghile Mear  (My Gallant Darling) - This is an old Irish song, written in that language by 18th-century poet Seán Clárach Mac Domhnaill in tribute to Bonnie Prince Charlie.  It is a lament or caoineadh that was written after his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Ae Fond Kiss - This song is Robert Burns' most recorded love song.  After the publication of his collected poems in the Kilmarnock volume in 1786, Burns regularly travelled and stayed at Edinburgh. While there he established a platonic relationship with Mrs Agnes Maclehose.  Burns wrote the song after their final meeting in 1791, before she left for Jamaica to be with her estranged husband.  Burns' verses were set to the tune of Rory Dall’s Port.  The musical score was published in the collection of Scottish folks songs known as the 'Scots Musical Museum' (between 1787-1803). My Nannie’s Awa’ - This Burns’ song, composed in 1794, is a lament sung by a young man for his absent lover.  Although the ballad highlights the many joys that nature can offer, it seems that the lovesick young man can no longer appreciate these joys, as he can only think about his departed lover.  It is set to an old tune, There’ll Never Be Peace.
