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.

The Palm Sunday anthem, HOSANNAS, depicts the procession of Jesus into Jerusalem. The listener is in the center of the city and hears the procession approaching. As the music grows louder and more intense, the listener comes face to face with the crowds around Jesus. After the close encounter with crowd, Jesus and His followers move on down the street, leaving the listener as an eyewitness to the event we now know and celebrate as Palm Sunday. To me, Palm Sunday is an exciting event, stirring the crowds with enthusiasm as they greet Jesus in His triumphal entry into Jerusalem. But the event is unresolved because Jesus is not the political �King� for whom they were seeking. When I wrote the anthem, I left many of the chords unresolved, giving the feeling of anticipation, yet not experiencing the resolution of that feeling. The anthem finally resolves in a quiet major chord as the crowds have moved away from the listener.
