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.

A short time - and as often happens - I got an email from Sheila Patterson, of Cypress Winds Clarinet Quartet, of Houston, Texas, say that she very much loved my arrangement of When the Saints Go Marching In, in the version for Clarinet Choir, and wondered whether I had one suitable for Clarinet Quartet?

I am delighted to say that I have now made an arrangement for Sheila and her fellow-players, and I hope it will continue to give pleasure in this latest version.

As ever, I've tweaked lines here and there, mainly to take into account the fact that writing for four players doesn't give as much freedom as does writing for a choir of instruments.

Sheila's ensemble consists of three Bb clarinets and bass clarinet, but I have also included two optional parts - for Alto Clarinet, and an ordinary Bb instrument respectively - should any other interested party not have a bass clarinet present. The result won't, of course, be quite as satisfactory, but it will still work.

The attached Mp3 - using Note Performer - represents 3 Bb clarinets + bass clarinet.

Take a look at the Cypress Winds Clarinet Quartet website, for more information.
