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

Two gloriously infectious movements from Mendelssohn`s `A Midsummer Night`s Dream` arranged for Clarinet Choir. Recorded by the University of Florida Clarinet Choir 2009. Included also is `Eine Tanz von Rupeln` (Dance of the Clowns). Just pure joy to perform.

Scherzo: Mendelssohn anticipates the fairies at the start of Act 2 in `A wood near Athens`. As the Scherzo ends, the curtain rises:-

PUCK: How now, spirit! Whither wander you?

FAIRY: Over hill, over dale, Thorough bush, thorough brier, Over park, over pale, Thorough flood, thorough fire, I do wander everywhere, Swifter than the moon`s sphere; And I serve the fairy queen, To dew her orbs upon the green . . . .

Rupel-Tanz: (Clown Dance) After being asked by Bottom to see the epilogue or to hear a Bergomask dance, Thesius chooses to `hear` the Bergomask, which is based on the mechanicals theme from the overture, which Mendelssohn had written 16 years earlier.

Fully bound set available from AW Music at £25.00 + shipping.
