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.

MY DEAR AND ONLY LOVE In 1643, while imprisoned in Falkirk Castle, James Graham, 1st Marquis and also the 5th Earl of Montrose (‘The Great Montrose’, 1612–1650), wrote the lyrics of this melody as a poem. The words promise to to make Charles 1 glorious with his pen and famous with his sword. The origin of the melody itself is unknown.

FAREWELL TO TARWATHIEAn old whaling song, written by George Scrogie, a miller at Federate, New Deer (near Aberdeen), in the early 1850s. Tarwathie is a farm in the lap of Mormond Hill, near the village of Strichen, and the song tells the story of a lad who left there to seek his fortune at the whaling.

FLOW GENTLY SWEET AFTON Burns wrote this song in 1791, and presented it to Mrs. Stewart, of Afton Lodge, as a tribute of gratitude and respect. The notice Mrs. Stewart had taken of the bard was the first he received from any person of her rank in life. Afton Lodge is located on the banks of the Afton River, a small tributary of the Nith, in Ayrshire. The Mary in the song probably refers to Mary Campbell, whom Burns courted in 1786. The melody was composed by Jonathan Edwards Spilman (1812-1896).
