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, 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 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.

Static preview

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

Interactive preview

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.

Full details

I'm a-testifyin' here on behalf of our Great Decider and his glorious administration. The lyrics are by the celebrated songwriter Davis Gloff.

If you purchase (or have purchased) this score, send me a message, and in return I'll send you a FREE (as in, you do not have to pay anything) MIDI file (playable on any computer) of the piano accompaniment, so that you can play along with it.

Cant find a piano player to learn the part? That's no longer a problem!

Mr. Gloff has kindly consented to bestow his permission to use the portion of the lyrics he wrote. Here, in its entirety, is his letter to SibeliusMusic:

Please consider this written permission For Keith Otis Edwards to use my lyrics in the song "GOsPel." I also grant Keith Otis Edwards the rights to ALL lyrics I have wriitten that appear in any of his songs, and at any time he chooses, for any reason he may choose, with or without informing me.

I also grant permission to use these lyrics to Keith Otis Edwards, his heirs and assigns for this song or any other song he may have written or may choose to write in the past or future for all time and in perpetuity, until suns shall rise and set no more.

I grant this fully and freely, of my own volition and being of sound mind.

Now leave him alone.

Davis Gloff.

Actually, I would be hard-pressed to recall which lines are by me and which are from Davis. The first two verses are mine, and so is the first verse of the bridge (the reference to Valerie Plame Wilson), but the second verse of the bridge is his, except that I changed the first word to "Rush" (reference to radio demagogue Rev. Limbaugh). The marvelous line "Status to be quoed," is his, but I put in the part "PBS to destroy" (reference to the Public Broadcasting System), and I remember looking up Karl Rove's middle initial, so that line was by me.

All together it was a fun collaborative effort.
