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

This work is a novelty item for an orchestra to perform at Christmas. It features 8 Christmas Carols with reference to another two carols. All the carols are arranged in a Latin American Style and will give your audience a big smile factor as it did at the premiere. The ten carols featured are: 1. Ding! Dong! Merrily on High 2. The Holly and the Ivy 3. Jingle Bells 4. Silent Night 5. Away in a Manger 6. O Come all ye Faithful 7. The Virgin Mary had a Baby Boy 8. We wish you a Merry Christmas and hinted at are Good King Wenceslas (introduction) and Joy to the World (last verse of Ding! Dong! Merrily on High).

Great for use as a guessing game for the audience (don’t get them to sing the carols as the rhythms are different from the usual!) The work was first performed as part of the John Ruskin Choral Society’s Christmas Concert on 4 December 2004 at St Francis of Assisi Church, Ravenswood Avenue, West Wickham, Kent played by the Ruskin Sinfonia conducted by the composer.

Orchestra required: 2 flutes, 1 oboe, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, timp, percussion (1 player) and strings
