"Abide with Me", sung to William Monk's tune "Eventide", is perhaps the greatest of all Christian Hymns which has given hope to many in their hour of greatest need. Mrs. Monk wrote - "The tune was writ�ten at a time of great sor�row�when to�ge�ther we watched, as we did dai�ly, the glo�ries of the set�ting sun. As the last gold�en ray fad�ed, he took some pa�per and pen�cilled that tune which has gone all over the earth." Certainly, no collection of great hymns for brass band would be complete without the tune "Eventide."

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.
