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.

FELIX MENDELSSOHN (b. Hamburg, Feb. 3, 1809 � d. Leipzig, Nov. 4, 1847)
Felix Mendelssohn was the second child and elder son of Abraham Mendelssohn, a keen businessman and successful banker, and his wife Leah Salomon, and the grandson of Moses Mendelssohn an eminent philosopher. Moses took the surname of Mendelssohn (son of Mendel) in accordance with a common Jewish custom. His most important work, Phaedon, or the Immortality of the Soul, was translated into all the languages of Europe, and his noble character made him known and loved throughout Europe as the �German Socrates�. His second son Abraham married the daughter of a Berlin banker, Leah Salomon in 1804, and Mendelssohn�s father had added the name �Bartholdy�, often seen on many of Mendelssohn�s scores, when he and his family abandoned the Jewish faith and were baptized as Christians. Mendelssohn�s mother Leah was a remarkable woman and was greatly accomplished. She played the piano and sang well; she had exquisite skill in drawing and water-colours; she read and spoke German, French, English and Italian, and knew enough Greek to read Homer in the original. She gave Felix his first Piano lessons, and then put him under the very best of masters in Piano, Violin, and composition. Amongst Mendelssohn�s very numerous compositions are 2 Oratorios (St. Paul and Elijah) and other Sacred Choral Works, 4 Symphonies, 2 Piano Concertos and a Violin Concerto, 6 beautiful Concert Overtures, a great deal of Chamber Music, much Piano Music, 6 Organ Sonatas and a little more Organ Music, and many Songs and Part songs. After his Oratorios, by far the most popular of Mendelssohn�s choral works is the Anthem �Hear My Prayer� which incorporates the �Hymn for Soprano, Chorus and Organ� - �O For The Wings of a Dove� which was composed in 1844.
