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

Tidied up from the 1979 original I did as part of my college course, with accidentals respelled. The dedication on the original manuscript reads: "For Anne in fulfillment of a 4 year promise"

It goes on:

Dear Miss Robinson - (our piano teacher in Grimsby) My second manuscript that I used for photocopying, I sent Anne the original pencil manuscript made from my sketches…. then it mentions 4 photocopies floating around the music department, one of which was "on its way to Weinburger which will no doubt shortly be returned with regrets but so many friends thought I should send it off that I thought I had nothing to lose…." Well, of course it neither got rejected or accepted and for all I know may still be festering there…. Can't say I blame them, it looked rough and the work of an amateur, but it had something they very obviously missed! Sibelius, MP3s and computers have done an awful lot for young composers in the way of presentation….
