My DURHAM DAYS 1957-63 were spent in the most congenial of company in both my College (Univeristy - the Castle) in Durham and the Music Department presided over by AJB Hutchings - typical Mad Professor. Among my fellow music students were George Selman and Peter Sayer both, alas, already dead to this world. On one occasion the three of us were silly and unkind enough to tease an attractive sales girl in Woolworth's by asking for a pound of 'peripatetic', which just happened to be the latest in-word in those remote times. We said that peripatetic was a powder which you added to flour in the process of making certain cakes. Naturally, the young lady was somewhat taken aback by this request for a commodity she had clearly never heard of. However, after consulting her supervisor, she was able to resassure us that, although they had run out stock of peripatetic for that week, there would probably be another delivery next week, if we wanted to come back then. Please listen with sympathy to my 'peripathetic'.

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.
