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.

In April 2006, I was asked to write a piece for Port Credit Secondary School's string orchestra to play on their trip to Vienna in April 2007. The piece was completed in October 2006, with some advice from my professor, David Lidov, on how to provide better balance for the strings. The following is the program note I included with the original score: There comes a time in the evening to step outside from the party; to vanish, if only temporarily, from the excitement of the crowd and to walk down the nearby path in the woods where there is silence. The lights and noise and blurred energy behind you are replaced with a new awareness of your surroundings; the starlit shadows bring about a new sense of consciousness - both relaxed and awake, drowsy but alert; passionate, but still calmly restrained as you begin to feel from the small vacuum in time you�ve made for yourself, a contemplation of life�s unstoppable forward march; the steadfast tin soldier in a world of emotion.
