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.

I have recently removed the Wind Band and Brass Band arrangements of The Lone Ar-ranger!, as these are now published by companies in the UK and in Switzerland.
Earlier this year, Robert Hofer, of the Austrian Brass Quintet, asked if he could make an arrangement of the work for his quintet, which I was delighted for him to do, and I understand it now regularly features in some of their concerts.
The picture shows the Austrian Brass Quintet.
Brian Anderson, who lives in Illinois, USA, recently emailed me to ask whether he could transpose the French Horn part for trombone, as his Quintet uses two trombones. He has kindly sent me the tranposed part, which he calls Trombino, since his second trombone player specialises in high ’French Horn’ parts, and it’s now included in the set of parts, marked as such! There’s also a part available for Soprano Cornet (in Eb), in lieu of Trumpet 1, one for Tenor Horn instead of French Horn, and a treble clef version of the Trombone.
Following a number of requests worldwide, I have now uploaded a special non-playing score, which lists, and identifies all the tune fragments used in The Lone Ar-ranger!

N.B. In the present economic climate, a good number of smaller ensembles understandably buy just the set of parts as, in reality, these alone are all that is needed in performance. Equally, a similar number buy both the parts and the full score. To compensate for this, I intend to reduce the cost of the full score by $4, and increase the price of the lead part by $3, a differential that wasn’t available to sellers at the former SibeliusMusic.com.
