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

In keeping with the Halloween theme, Ghouls Gigue is the third dance in the set of "Three Dances for Halloween". Ghouls are defined as monsters that deal in the seriously macabre and are un-dead. Well undead is certainly the theme of these dances, however, my interpretation of Ghouls, in keeping with the tongue-in-cheek theme of these dances, is the mischievous version, wreaking havoc wherever they go. They are certainly not pleasant, but they are creatures that enjoy the process of wreaking havoc more than the havoc itself. These guys just dance about making mischief as they dance without missing a beat. I used tone centricity in this dance as I did in Spooky Waltz to achieve a delicate balance between tonality and atonality giving this lively piece an "other worldly" feel as the lines move back and forth on either side of tonality.
