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

[�Theme And Accompaniments� would be a more formally academic alternative appellation ; an informal, nonacademic one would be "Milking A Tune".]

Here we have an original 10-bar tune, scribbled down ages ago but forgotten about, given 8 new back-to-back trips through a variety of accompaniments, for which its fickle harmonic allegiances, unhurried tempo and sparse notes equip it well.

In the score, each repetition of the tune begins with a Roman numeral (II � VIII). The tune�s 3 sections migrate freely between octaves, with accompaniment above or below: otherwise the tune remains relatively unscathed en route, apart from occasional accents, dynamics, enforced rests and 2 initial triplets becoming dotted figures. The tempo is strictly 40 b.p.m. throughout until only the penultimate bar: no rubato, fermata or �putting in the expression� ! [Trivia: The tune would be exactly 1 minute long if its final bar were 4/4 like the previous 9 instead of 2/4; which takes off 2 beats = 3 seconds, leaving the 57-second variety.]
