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.

Full details

FOUR STUDIES (Based on the Book of Job), Op. 62 for clarinet solo were written in July 1991 in the small village of Cwm in Shropshire. The Book of Job caught my attention because of the beautiful illustrations by William Blake, and my work is in part musical commentary on them. The caption written above or below each of Blake's pictures is read first by clarinetist who then plays the melodic phrases representing these words, translated into notes by musical means, i.e. letter=note. 1. There was a Man in the Land of Uz (Ch.1: 1-2); 2. The fire is fallen from Heaven (Ch.1: 16); 3. Let the day perish wherein I was born (Ch. 3:3); 4. Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind (Ch. 38:1-2). Before the end, the clarinetist sings the folk tune Job (Come all you worthy Christian men) while playing a different melodic line. Listening to the first performance of the work (25 October 1991 in Ohio State University, Columbus with Bruce Curlette as soloist) I had feeling that the work is more akin to a sermon in music.
