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

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

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

I was recently asked to arrange Gregorio Allegri's famous Miserere for string quartet. The original SSATB chorus with SATB soloists has been pared down to a four parts (with some double stopping to cover some needed fifth pitches). Page turns for the violins and cello happen at rests. The solo chant portions have been assigned to the viola, who, having no rests of which to speak, needs to have the three pages laid out in front of him/her all at once in order to avoid page turns. The unmetered chant has been changed accentually to put the stressed syllables of the original text (absent here) ON the beat, following an approximation of the rhythmic patterns of spoken speach. I will update this information later giving specific measures where this occurs for those who wish to change back to unmetered pulses.
