Dr. Hope Davis came to Imperial Valley College as my replacement when I retired. She also accepted the position as music director for one of the local churches. Ena Jane Fugate, ane of the violinists of my orchestra (and who also happens to be a fine alto singer), sings in the church choir under Dr. Davis. In conversation, Dr. Davis mentioned that, as she is also a violist, she was looking for someone to play duos with, but had no music available after her move. Jane asked me if I had any violin/viola duets, and so this is the first of a new set.

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.
