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

Using ancient Sanskrit mantras that exist for the purposes of yogic meditation, the top line sways through the same four note scheme over the full 12 minutes. The choral layout varies from three-part (SSA), four-part (SATB) to six part (SSATBB), with a brief 7 part section (SSAATBB).

The Mantras explained, listed in order of frequency of use:

Om Namo Narayanaya (Om Na-Mo Naa-Raa-Ya-Na-Ya) Associated with Vishnu, representing the preserving energy that keeps the Universe in balance. A peace mantra of particular use when negative energies seem to be out of control.

Om Sri Durgayai Namah (Om Shree Dur-Ga-Yay Na-Mah) Durga is seen as God as Mother. She is the divine protector. In Her arms She holds all the powers of the Universe. She rides a lion, symbolising the forces of nature.

Om Gam Ganapataye Namah (Om Gam Ga-Na-Pa-Ta-Yay) Ganapathi is another name for Ganesha the elephant-headed deity who is revered as the remover of obstacles and bestower of success.

Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya (Om Na-Mo Ba-Ga-Va-Tay Va-Soo-De-Va-Ya) Krishna is seen as the supreme world teacher, as he is the giver of the Bhagavad Gita, one of the great texts.

Soham (So-Ham) Roughly translates as "I am that I am", meaning that no limitations can be put on the divine. The natural sound of the breath being exhaled and inhaled.
