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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

This is an original march in the classic style. The 6/8 opening section is meant to sound lugubrious and bring to mind the galleons of old as they breached the waves in stately fashion. The soprano cornet should be clear and sweet in imitation of the piping of nautical whistles. The basses provide the sound of the drum used to keep the oarsmen pulling together.
The bass solo represents the seamen singing and chanting as they work. At the trio, the time changes to 2/4 and the style is much lighter. Here, the smaller lighter sailors are climbing up to the crow's nest and working in the rigging. The final section references the well-known "Sailor's Hornpipe" before the DC al Fine.
All of the parts are demanding. This is not an easy piece. Suitable for 2nd section bands and up.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
