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.

CAROLS FOR AUDIENCE AND ORCHESTRA Many orchestras, both amateur and professional, have Christmas Concerts that encourage the audience to ’sing-along’ with carols. Here is an easy arrangement that gives the orchestra something more to play than just the same ’hymnbook’ version, verse after verse. Divide the audience into the ladies and children to sing the Page and the King by the men! The conductor, or MC, should tell the audience that there are intros. to some of the verses and a slow up for the minor section AND they should watch the conductor!!! All these ’Carols for Audience’ have been played by the Kent Concert Orchestra at their annual Christmas Concerts in the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury and now by various orchestras all over the world due to the wonder of Sibelius. Scoring: 2(2nd plays Picc.);2;2;2 4;2;3;1 Timps; S.Drum: Cymb; Harp(Optional); Strings.

The MP3 is a recording of the first run through at rehearsal - taken a little too fast!!! It takes at least 30 seconds to start so be patient!
