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.

The Lone Ar-ranger!, in all its various guises, has proved to be quite popular, and has been heard in a number of different forms around the world. I have been fortunate that some of these versions and arrangements have now been published in hard copy, and whenever they have appeared in print, I have, of necessity, removed them from SibeliusMusic.
Earlier this year, I was contacted by Ron Armstrong, MD of the Southampton Pops Orchestra, here in the UK, to ask whether I had thought of making an arrangement for their sort of set-up, essentially a full wind band + strings, and with some extras like keyboard, rhythm and bass guitars. To do this, I have basically combined the wind and string version, but kept the wind key (concert F), as this seemed better all round. The addition of a keyboard has allowed me to add in some extra instruments, or rather their sounds, where appropriate, like banjo, harpsichord and celeste.
The Southampton Pops Orchestra has just released a brand new CD, Celebrations, which includes The Lone Ar-ranger! For further details, and to order the CD, please click here.
Ron writes:
'Celebrations' is an enlightening CD, featuring some of the best-loved music from the past 50 years, as well as some brand new works. Titles on this CD include 'Music From The Gladiator' by Hans Zimmer, 'It Was A Very Good Year' by Frank Sinatra, Philip R Buttall's 'The Lone Ar-Ranger', and 'Lord Of The Rings Symphony No. 1', with music featured in the epic film trilogy. The CD is guaranteed to make you sit up and listen, with an exciting and invigorating performance from the orchestra.
