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.

Two shepherds, who are old friends, meet on the road to Bethlehem. They chat informally about the amazing apparition one of them saw last night. At first, the other shepherd is sceptical but, eventually, both head off to Bethlehem together to pay homage to the baby Jesus. The choir sings in 2 parts - one part for each shepherd.
Everybody loves performing this fun song! I’ve received enthusiastic feedback from choirs around the world across all age ranges - primary, secondary, sixth form, university, community choirs and senior citizens. Some dress up, use props, show placards etc. Just have fun with it in your own way. The text of the song faithfully includes the key events of the bible story. Those events are presented within a vernacular conversation that also adds the shepherds' personal reactions and feelings.
The voice parts are mostly easy but the instrumentalists will need a little more skill.
If you want each member of your choir to sing from their own copy, copyright rules mean that, even in schools, you should buy multiple copies rather than reproducing a single vocal score. This is now possible on ScoreExchange.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
