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.

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

The last - and extra-canonical - Magnificat antiphon (see my setting of Advent Antiphon 1, O Sapientia, for a note on the Mag. antiphons). The text was used at Salisbury on 23 December, and still is in use by the Norbertine order. I find it the most beautiful of the antiphons, and this simple setting would make a suitable brief anthem at a carol concert or Christmas service (best in its intended place, preceding or succeeding a setting of the Magnificat). My translation: O Virgin of virgins,how can this thing be? Since time began there was never one like you, nor shall be ever after. Daughters of Jerusalem, why do you marvel at me? Divine is the mystery before you, and which you adore.
