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.

Full details

"Mu isamaa on minu arm" ("My Fatherland is My Love") is an Estonian poem by Lydia Koidula. The poem was first set to music for the first Estonian Song Festival in 1869 by Aleksander Kunileid. "Mu isamaa on minu arm" became a very popular patriotic song when a new melody was written by Gustav Ernesaks. It is always performed at the ending of the Song Festival "Tallinna üldlaulupidu". The song may be confused with the Estonian national anthem because of the similar title and opening notes. During the Soviet regime "My Fatherland is My Love" became something of an unofficial national anthem.

This arrangement is for the Inspired Instrumentalists of Worthing. They are a U3A group which has been running for 3 years. One of the members asked whether or not the song sung at the Festival, could be arranged for the group. Well, here it is! Imagine a crowd of thousands and one person starts singing a phrase of the anthem, a second person from somewhere else in the crowd sings another phrase and so on until the whole piece has been sung. The whole crowd then sing the song with great passion.
