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.

�Lauda Primavera� is a textless, pantheistic hymn inspired by a sentimental journey back to one of the dearest of my childhood haunts, deep in the woodlands across the bay from Houston, near the tiny town of Wallisville. The core and point of origin of the piece is in the first violin part, measures 9b �13a. That passage is a duplication of a bird call (measures 9b � 11a) and a mockingbird�s comical attempt to imitate it (11b � 13a). �Lauda Primavera� is scored to make use of the warm lower register of the violin and the singing capabilities of all the strings� middle registers. The piece also provides moderately advanced string students an enjoyable, yet challenging, opportunity to confront the issues of complex rhythmic patterns; direct and modified pattern recurrence; bowing, bow control, and bow budgeting; staying on a slow beat and subdividing the beat; and, for first violins, ornamentation, playing harmonics, and optional shifting and playing in position. The opening of the poem at the top of the complete score is from the pen of one of my great-great grandfathers. It appeared in his _Thoughts in Verse_ (Kansas City: Ramsey, Millet, and Hudson, 1881).
