Rochdale is one of the many towns in the north west of England which grew up rapidly and flourished for several generations as the scene of frantic experiment and growth during the 'industrial revolution' of western Europe. It is set in a river (the Roch) valley among the moorlands of old Lancashire to the north of the city of Manchester. Outside the busy commercial and industrial town centre are many pleasant and some even quite spectacular areas of natural beauty, like Healey Dell - now a nature reserve - which is a narrow gorge cut out of the rock by the river Spodden as it flows down from Rooley Moor to reach its confluence with the Roch in Spotland. A monumental viaduct spans the river at the highest and steepest point of the dell. Animal and bird sounds echo and re-echo with the sounds of wind and the rustling of trees and plants………….

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

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

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.
