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.

I was always curious about listening to the national anthem of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) which was very often vilified in the western world, both, as to text and melody. Now, that I had the opportunity to do so, I, personally, see nothing offensive in it, on the contrary, I find that both, text and melody, where adequate to the circumstances under which this anthem was created. I think it would also fit the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), because the conditions in Western Germany were no different than those prevailing in her eastern counterpart. Ideologies apart, I admire the spirit and determination of rebuilding, as expressed in the beginning line: "Resurrected out of ruins." The longing for peace and harmony with other nations is also patent, as in "No mother shall mourn her son."

Since I had only access to the melody, I harmonised it according to my own taste and set it for piano and mixed four-voiced choir.
