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.

  • "This is quite a dynamic piece for having been written by a 19 yr. old Australian young man… It is modern yet classical in sound and structure, i.e. chaos to resolution, cluster chords, modal, yet sensible in usage. It definitely carries a great weight with regard to the dramatic involvement of the singers and the stylistic interpretation it so richly deserves. The dynamics alone are impressive: ppp-fff. This "Stabat Mater" will be full of tension-filled dramatic moments followed by equally as many relaxed and gentle moments of pathos and serenity. This is an absolutely wonderful composition. It possesses all of the great ingredients of an a'cappella composition: drama, tonality versus atonality, extreme dynamics, serious subject matter, superb moments of musical nuance, challenging rhythms, tricky metric notation and flowing melodic lines of romanticism. This piece has it all, and yet it is only 20-25 minutes in length."

    Dr. J.D. Goddard, Founder and Artistic Director of Master Singers, Inc. of Northeast Ohio and Chamber Singers, Inc.
  • "This setting of the Stabat Mater is truly remarkable. This is the music of a very talented composer. To set the lengthy, sometimes repetitive, text of the Stabat is no mean feat, but here he has done so with originality and a great deal of sensitivity for the text and performers (something we could do with a lot more on this site). This is a composer to watch. Remarkable."

    "This is wonderful stuff. Very passionately and sensitively-written music which exhudes a great beauty. You've certainly got great talent, mate. While I'm not particularly fond of the text of Stabat Mater myself, I've got to say that your setting is one of the best I've ever heard, Pergolesi and Poulenc notwithstanding. You're clearly very influenced by the mid-renaissance period (do I hear a hint of Lassus!?), but it's certainly not plagiaristic. The movement progresses quite logically, and naturally, towards the AMEN at the end. […]"
