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.

A Song Without Words is in 6/8 time but it has an interesting aspect to the meter. The melody line has the feel of 3/4 and the accompaniment has the feel of 6/8. The melody is in a high register. Its tempo is slow. These factors give this piece moments of a slight ethereal effect. So, for me these characteristics make this song feel rather meditative and somewhat longing with a gentle waltz rhythm. Because of the slow adagio tempo and smooth line on top of the underlying regular, two groups of triply divided beat, it also is a lullaby. This little piece has a little waltz emphasis that comes up twice. It represents a yearning to dance. One may find the music to float and move gracefully. I find this same kind of nature with how the cosmos seems to move in the bigger view of the Universe. It is only a little piece, a small work, but it has come forth from some underlying meaning in friendship, so it holds that kind of value if one can see it.
