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

It's a little known fact that the producers of Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid originally intended the film to be set in Medieval England with the working title of Hard Harry and Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese Gang. In this sequence of the draft soundtrack, Harry and his sidekick, Cutpurse Clive, have defied the law by escaping from London and hiding out in lovely rural South Mimms, Hertfordshire, near Potters Bar. There they continue their criminal activity by robbing Innkeepers Lodges and motorway service stations. They are helped by the ample charms of Clive's doxy, Thruppenny Joan, who distracts the innkeepers while Clive cuts off their assets! They make their escape on donkeys as the King's men get closer and closer each time. To add authenticity to the score, the producers asked that tunes by Henry VIII no less should be incorporated, including Greensleeves (dubious) and Pass Time In Good Company (more likely). (Hmmm no wonder they changed their mind and turned it into a western!) The vocals in this piece, should it ever be performed, are to be sung in Swingle Singers style.
