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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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 Mum always liked Gustav Holst’s tune for this carol, and it is, indeed, a beautifully effective and simple melody.
My first alternative setting, which I knew was certainly not as good as Holst’s, has still been favourably reviewed, though, of course, I do very much concur with the comments ofAndrew Lowe-Watson, who says that, whilst it might be a ’very pretty melody’, it does not really conjure up the ’snow’, as Holsts’s very much does.
This is my second alternative setting which, whilst keeping the 6/8 meter of my previous working, might, by virtue of the minor key, perhaps create a somewhat more appropriate vehicle for Christina Rossetti’s text.
Again, the vocal writing is quite straightforward, with some simple harmony, mostly in 3rds, in the third verse, and some simple canonic imitation in the last. The piano accompaniment is equally not too demanding. I have once more set four verses, omitting Rossetti’s original third verse.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
