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

This song is heart-rendingly beautiful, and although the meaning of the words has been lost, Varado is a lament.

The story behind it goes that two brothers go walking on a mountain, and one of the brothers gets stuck; he is petrified, and cannot move. His brother, thinking to give him the strength to overcome his fear, tells him that he has been sleeping with his wife, and that the children are his. This enrages the brother who was stuck so much that he manages to climb down, and then kills his brother. He then goes to his mother, to explain why he committed fratricide. The mother is heartbroken, and says to her son "Didn't you realise that the only reason why he was telling you this was to give you the strength to overcome your fear?" The murdering brother then realises the gravity of what he has done, and takes his own life.

Now you will have some idea of the emotions that go into the song, and this will help you to sing it with feeling.
