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.

COVER NOTE: "This piece is intended to be played very slowly first time through, and then gradually and constantly to be sped up until it is unbearably fast! There are three sections written in this score - the basic tune and accompaniment, an alternative heavily adorned variation which can be introduced quite early (i.e. when the piece is still slow) for further comic value, and a variation for the seconda part which can be used when the piece is too fast to play the quaver chords in the original accompaniment. However, the piece should be played as a whole, with no gaps for when these sections are introduced. The players are also free to ad lib and to place their own personal touches to the piece."

The Tempos heard during playback have been set to give an idea only, you can use the tempo slider to speed or slow down the piece accordingly.

The score includes performance ideas on the last page.
