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 biography of Ippolito Baccusi remains to be clearly established. He was born in Mantua about 1550 and died in Verona in 1609. He is thought to have been employed for a time at San Marco, but the evidence for this is slight. However, on November 14 1574 one "frate Hypolito" was appointed maestro di cappella at Santo Stefano in Venice with a mansionaria of 24 ducats. That this Frate is probably Baccusi is evident from a later entry, dated 2 September 1592, which records his re-appointment: "Fu eletto per maestro de capella della nostra chiesa … il padre fra Ippolito Baccusio …" Apparently it is not clear in either case how long he remained in the post, although Zacconi mentions that he arrived in Venice in 1577 and studied with Baccusi there. The Missa Quel Rossignuol is the first sacred piece of Baccusi to be published in modern times. It is a parody on a madrigal yet to be identified - though there is a distinct similarity to the opening of the setting by Donato . The mass is in high clefs and is here transposed down a fourth according to the clef codes of the time. It can of course be performed at any convenient pitch, and copes are available in other transpositions.
