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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

This year sees the celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir Edward Elgar, and amongst his greatest compositions lie the Enigma Variations "the supreme example of how to elaborate in so many different ways upon a simple theme". Indeed, he dedicated the work "to my friends pictured within", each variation being an affectionate portrayal of one of his circle of close acquaintances.
The ninth variation, Nimrod, is here arranged for voices - not the first to do so. It is dedicated to Augustus J. Jaeger, Elgar’s best friend. It is said that this variation, as well as an attempt to capture what Elgar saw as Jaeger’s noble character, depicts a night-time walk the two of them had, during which they discussed the slow movements of Ludwig van Beethoven (the first eight bars represent the beginning of Beethoven’s Pathetique Sonata). The name of the variation punningly refers to an Old Testament patriarch described as a mighty hunter, the name Jaeger being German for hunter. The text is the Communion antiphon from the Mass for the Dead.
Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine, cum sanctis tuis in aeternum, quia pius es. Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine; et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Trans: May everlasting light shine upon them, O Lord, with thy saints in eternity, for thou art merciful. Grant them eternal rest, O Lord, and may everlasting light shine upon them.
