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

Part II consists of cowboy songs. While the musical origin of these songs are often European and the words are created by cowboys in regions other than the southwest United States, they are included in this suite because the cowboy culture is important to this region and the songs are universal among cowboys. Movement 4 is a Night Herding Song, a lullaby for cattle claimed to have been written by Harry Stephens while herding in Yellowstone Park. The phrases of this song are separated by guitar obbligatos, and modulation and altered chords are used extensively. Old Chisholm Trail is the source for movement 5. According to legend, this song had a verse for every mile of trail from Texas to Kansas. The refrain may have been borrowed from the Indians. Syncopation, modulation, mode change, and polytonality are some of the techniques used in this setting. Movement 6 � Get Along Little Dogies was used by cowboys to sooth the restless Dogies, the cowboy�s name for yearling calves. The setting is soothing with lush harmonies and contains a cadenza for flute and guitar.
