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

This piece is a substantially re-scored version of the Romance for Horn & Orchestra published last year and has been prepared for a performance by the Forum Sinfonietta at their concert scheduled for 6th March 2004 at St Johns, Bethnal Green, London. As the Forum Sinfonietta is a chamber ensemble, this score has only single woodwind and no harp or timpani. Parts have been added instead for a piano, for a Bb trumpet and trombone.

The Romance has been played through in this form a couple of times already and I have incorporated many of the points raised by the players on notation and playability. I am especially grateful to the soloist, Giles Brindley, for his enthusiasm and for his advice on matters of phrasing. Thanks are also due to Jacob Bard-Rosenberg and to Tim Ellis, two fellow SibMus composers, for their comments and suggestions. Finally, my appreciation to Alan Taylor for shouldering the burden of rehearsing and conducting this piece.
