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

The year is 1336, one year before the start of The Hundred Years War. A simple teenage shepherd boy tends his sheep with his father in the French hills as they guide their herd to the markets of medieval Carcassonne. Together they dream of life as French noblemen, imagining the riches, the dancing, the life of leisure. As they approach the castle city walls, they hear old tunes that they each sang as young children. Upon entering the massive gates, they are confronted with the hectic pace and confusion of a thriving city - merchants dickering, town criers shouting the news, and the local duke summoning his noble courtiers for a ceremony. It is a memorable event to both father and son - one that will last for generations, retold down through the ages, and a memory that will sustain hope for a family that will soon suffer through a long, dark period of war.
