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

Composed around 1976 when I was involved in the restoration of the organs of the Cathedral of Mexico City under the supervision of Architect Jaime Ortiz Lajous who was then in charge of the works of said Cathedral. First performed a year later by Dr. Dirk Andries Flentrop of Flentrop Orgelbouw B. V., Zaandam, Holland, on the organ of 1695 of said cathedral, around the time when Monsignor Ernesto Corripio Ahumada was enthroned on 19 July 1977 as the new Archbishop, hence the title. Rewritten for strings and incorporated in String Quartet No. 1.

The MP3 file must be improvisations on an earlier version, played very slowly by myself, on the organ of 1695 in the cathedral of Mexico City on 16 April 1978, and it gives at least an idea of the acoustics of the locale. Unfortunately, the reeds in the pedal came out too dominant.
