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

These are two part arrangements of 11 famous carols for treble and tenor recorders. The carols are Deck the Hall, God Rest You Merry, Good King Wenceslas, It Came Upon the Midnioght Clear, Joy to the World, O Come All Ye Faithful, See Amid the Winter's Snow, The Holly and the Ivy, While Shepherds Watched, Unto Us a Boy is Born and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing. The keys are the keys which suit the treble recorder best and so are typically a fourth higher / 5th lower than the usual keys for singing. This corresponds to the tune in the alto rather than soprano range. The Descant and Treble version suits Sop / Alto and Bass singers.

The words have not been added as it is likely any singers will already have them in the many collected editions of carols and recorder players will have sung the carols and so will know how to phrase them. The harmony is mostly compatable with familiar versions but an emphasis has been made on creating effective two part writing.

The edition, though concieved with recorder ranges in mind, can obviously be played on two flutes, oboes or violins etc.
