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.

Another project for my harmony/composition class, this is my first attempt at a vocal piece of any kind. Wenn die Sonne Weggegangen is a lied for soprano (or a mezzo who can reach a high A-flat) and piano based on the poem by Clemens Brentano of the same name. I decided to aim less for a nice melody and instead primarily aim for effective text painting, hence the use of minor flat-III on 'dunkelheit heran' (darkness descends) and 'mohrenkind' (dark child), the use of a Tristan chord resolving outwards on 'zeigen' (reveal), and the appearance of the Omnibus at the end ('Wie die Liebe nimmer ruht' or my love never ceases).

A rough translation of the lyrics: When the Sun has left, Darkness descends. The sunset has golden cheeks, And the night a veil of sadness. Since love has fled, I am now a dark hcild, And the rosy, joyful cheeks Are dark and sunken. Darkness must silence All pain, all longing; But the moon and stars reveal That which dwells within my heart. When my lips conceal from you My heart's quiet passion, My look and tears must reveal That my love never ceases.
