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.

NOTE: An MP3 file, using Kontakt sounds, is available online at this site for listening.

Like both "Love’s Longing" and "At Close of Day" (also at this site), "Reminiscence" resides stylistically ca. 1900-1920, within the area between the conservative academic and the popular, a niche that was quite prominent at that time, especially in the English-speaking world.

I have tried to balance the somewhat demanding character of the bowed string parts (especially the syncopes in the inner voices, which must be precisely coordinated) with a harp part that a harpist with a reasonable degree of expertise should be able to perform without huge difficulty, although the duplet-against-triplet rhythm in the return of the A-section might be somewhat challenging. Pedal changes are minimal.
