A post from Germany on the Internet asked for nursery tunes and German and Enlish/American children’s songs arranged for string quartet for a christening in May. This was one of the tunes requested. After I asked about doing the arranging job, the poster turned out to be the niece of a very good friend of mine. Small world to run into someone that one (almost) knows half way ’round the world!

Besides its original purpose, this would be suitable for an elementary school orchestra concert. (I will provide a string bass part later.)

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.
