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 Ash Wednesday and Lenten anthem is a standard piece in the choral repertoire and so needs little introduction. The version offered here is, however, of particular interest in being set from the first published edition, the Twelve Anthems of 1853. We usually sing the revised (1863) version. The 1853 version differs very little, in fact. But note that in bars 30-1 (1853) the altos repeat all, all on their E ntaural with the tenors; whereas in later edns the E is tied and all sung once only. All dynamics as in original, with any variation marked in square brackets. The original organ part is followed as exactly as possible, with only a few minor transpositions of a left hand voice to rh and vice versa. Punctuation of the text is modernised (there is virtually none in the original). Note, however, that I have retained one important instance of 1853 punctuation at bar 94: the full stop here seems to suggest an emphatic pause, one longer than that at 87; this in turn suggests a very piano, almost coda-like, treatment of the final 7 bars.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
