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.

A Test Piece I wrote for a lower section band.
'The Music of Castle Hill' is a musical rendition of the history of Castle Hill in Huddersfield
The Piece has 5 sections each of them using and manipulating the key motif to the piece; the theme which starts the whole piece in the basses and euphoniums.
The Beginning of 'the Musick of Castle Hill' depicts the hill, looming over Huddersfield in West Yorkshire (beginning to figure 'B'). This meanders around the motif before leading into the second section (figure 'B' to figure 'F'). The second section is the bustling reniassance market town which Castle Hill was from more or less it's 'birth'. The Music continues to build becoming more and more frenetic before suddenly everything appears to evaporate leaving 3 cornets and a baritone to quietly bring in the next section. The third section (figure 'F' to figure 'I') is the desertion of Castle Hill, which no historians have been able to put an accurate date on. During this period, The town was abandoned and left to deteriorate until the reign of the Victorians. The fourth section (figure 'I' to figure 'P') depicts the Victorians arriving at Castle Hill, though the Castle had disappeared long before, and erecting a monument to Queen Victoria. The Music builds through the Fugato section becoming rapturous at the end. The final section, or epilogue (figure 'P' to the end), is the view from the Hill at night. The Glockenspiel tinkles like the vast sea of lights visible as you look down over Huddersfield.
