This is a four-part SATB setting of a poem by Sir Walter Scott from ’The Antiquary’. It was originally intended for solo voices and piano, my parents singing the soprano and tenor parts respectively, with two friends provided the alto and bass, with me at the piano. It could equally suit somewhat larger resources, perhaps a chamber choir or other similar-sized vocal ensemble.
The picture shows a bust of Scott.

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.
