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

I wrote this song after having been through the gruelling process of building a house. I have attached the words to aid those who’s mother-tongue is not english. As you will see, it is deliberately not correct, gramatically, and should be viewed as the best solution in trying to portray the dialect in use in the East End of London:


Builders, we are the lowest of the low, Builders, we always are so bleeding slow. We never keep to the price that we say, Our bills are sent out the very next day.

Builders, we really couldn�t give a toss, Builders, it�s really us who is the boss. Your life comes to a halt, because it ain�t our fault If someone else has put it in all wrong.

Builders, we always like to have a moan, Builders, we call our girlfriends on the �phone. And ask them what time we�ll be having our grub, �Cos all the lads want to go down the pub.

Builders, you�ll wake up worrying at night, Builders, should all the windows be that height? Remember to explain about the kitchen drain, Before you start to put down the parkett.

We�ll tell a lie to keep you guessing Who you think should be to blame. You wonder why it�s all so distressing, Guv�nor it�s part of the game.

Builders, we are as lazy as can be, Builders, we�re always sitting drinking tea. We finish early, and can�t wait to go, The time just passes so quickly, you know.

Builders take no responsibility, Builders don�t offer you no guarantee. You cannot pin us down, �cos we have all left town With all of you money.

Good luck, should any of you decide to employ a builder!
