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.

Most summers I used to like to visit my dear friends, Peter, Roberta & Princess Grainne (the soft-coated Irish Wheaten terrier!), who live about half an hour to the south of Bremen, in the village of Bramstedt, North Germany. Last year, as I was walking down the straight, flat road across the fields, on my way to Bramstedt ’International’ (actually just a platform on the main railway line!), this little march tune came to me, rather in the manner of a Beethoven sketch - but whereas he jotted it down in a notebook, I hummed it into my mobile phone’s voice memo!

In April 2003, I was one of three local composers to share a lunchtime recital where some of our works were performed. Having an excellent flautist and clarinetist at my disposal, I decided to use the tune for the two of them, with me at the piano. It is very much intended as a tongue-in-cheek, fun German march, with a direct lift from a famous German folksong in the trio, and another brief Germanic reference at the end!

The accompanying MP3 file is a recording of the work’s premiere at Plymouth City Museum, with Anne Kimber (flute) and Peter Cigleris (clarinet).

I have included the following parts: a separate Flute, and Bb Clarinet part respectively, a combined score which includes both the Flute and the Clarinet part. The pianist has two options: either use the Full Score (this includes piano, flute and clarinet together), or the Piano Accompaniment part - this has just the piano part, so the other two instruments aren't cued in, but is just a little less unwieldy on the music stand, if required.
