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

Text from a selection in Gleanings from the Writings of Bah�'u'll�h sets the mood and inspiration for this song. It begins "Release yourselves, O nightingales of God, from the thorns and brambles of wretchedness and misery, and wing your flight to the rose-garden of unfading splendor….", I've worked images from this text into the lyrics and set them in the garden of Ridv�n: .. In a garden stands a man… who is 'the Best Beloved of all things. The listener is invited to break the chains of self through enraptured love of God and His Manifestation. Images from the Bible that speak to this day are also used: "Behold, I make all things new"; the 'stars' of the world, its kings and rulers, fall when they fail to heed the divine summons; "All eyes shall see Him" and 'Seek and ye shall find'. The tempo is moderately fast and the choruses are rousing. It's a joyful song from my Musical "Certitude" (1994).
