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.

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

Ariadne Musica by Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer is perhaps the most seminal work in the development of classical music. And as all Western music systems are descended from it almost everything from Classical music to Rock, - Jazz to Pop and their offspring owe Fischer a debt of recognition, if not gratitude.

In my reinterpretation of the pieces I have endeavoured to keep the form as close to the originals as the digital medium will allow. For anyone wishing to play this series, these interpretations are fairly close to the originals, so any organist could do worse than to follow my tacit suggestions. It takes time to find each separate prelude and each separate fugue and to work out what sound was intended. My Hammond organ is less than ideal for the purpose, but as I dont have a church pipe organ it will have to do. As I complete each reinterpretation for midi I will add them to this folder until I have amassed the whole set.

For details of this project see Ariadne Musica Prelude and Fugue #2 in C# Minor.
