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

The River Medlock springs up in the hills above the town of Oldham, once one of the busiest centres of the cotton, steel and coal industries on which the wealth and power of British empire were founded. By-passing the urban centre to the east, it tumbles gently down the hillside on its way towards the vast connurbation of Greater Manchester, the River Irwell, the Manchester Ship Canal and the sea. At this stage the river is at one with itself and its natural surroundings. I hope that the music suggests that agreeable inter-relationship of earth and sky at a point where water bubbles out of the ground to start another surface journey as it moves around the planet. Human beings living near the source of a river are affected by its presence and, in turn, affect its progress by the ways they tap into its powers. (More of that in the second piece.) Rainfall, water's search for sunlight and a pathway across the land, the human delight in the presence of flowing water - all these feelings were around as the notes of this piece were jotted down. The present revision has been made for a performance of the whole work by the Oldham Symphony Orchestra in July 2005.
