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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

IF YOU HAVE TEARS TO SHED . . .
After Franz Schubert died at the age of 31, his brother gathered some manuscripts of songs and sold them to a publisher. The songs had no common theme, but they decided to give the collection the name "Swan Songs."
The songs did not sell, and were neglected for ten years until piano arrangements were made of them by Franz Liszt, who performed these transcription at a concert to benefit the victims of a flood in Hungary that wiped out the city of Pest (now part of Budapest).
Today, when a football coach announces that he is leaving the team, sports announcers refer to the speech as "his swan song." They likely have never heard of Franz Schubert, but these songs proved so influential, that the term "swan song" has entered the English vocabulary as someone's parting or dying statement.
From the collection "Swan Songs" this is the Serenade. (Other songs from this collection by Schubert that I have arranged are Doppelg�ngerand Die Stadt.) In a collection of sad songs, this is probably the saddest song ever written.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
