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.

"In South Australia I was born Heave away, haul away South Australia round Cape Horn We’re bound for South Australia Heave away, you rolling king Heave away, haul away Heave away, oh hear me sing We’re bound for South Australia" "Bound for South Australia" or "South Australia" is a sea shanty used by the wool traders who worked the clipper ships between Australian ports and London. This traditional tune is well known as a farewell song, sung at the docks as the big ships were leaving. The song has two distinct parts: The "Shanty" and "Halyard". This is a short arrangement for full orchestra. I also used this tune in my "Australian Folksong Medley No. 2" for concert band. If you use this arrangement, let me know how it goes. Parts inlcude Piano, Accordion and Guitar.

The MP3 was recorded with NotePerformer.

Grade = 3 Duration = 2:35 mins

I have also done a Concert Band version of the same arrangement.
