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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

PRIESTS� CHORUS FROM DIE ZAUBERFLOTE First performance 30 September 1791, Vienna (Theater auf der Wieden)
TEXT: E. SCHIKANEDER
MUSIC: W. A. MOZART (1756 1791)
In the last years of his life Mozart became an ardent Freemason and in 1791 the year of his death his health gave cause for concern. Although he never renounced the Catholic Church, the Masonic influence was all too prevalent in several works including the opera Die Zauberflote, which is an imaginative portrayal of Masonic ritual and symbolism, and the �Maurer� cantata. Mozart�s last opera is set in Egypt, and Sarastro the high priest of Isis and Osiris conducts the hieratic aspects and the series of trials for Tamino and Pamina, being a prerequisite before a marriage licence is granted. The Priests� chorus �O Isis und Osiris� is an evocation to the God�s and is intended as an introduction to the lovers� trial by fire and water.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
