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.

I learnt this song on my first real experience week of Georgian music, with the members of 'Mtiebi', a men's choral ensemble from Tbilisi, in the late summer of 2002. It was taught by the late Koba Tsitsishvili, with the help of Gigi Garakanidze, the son of the late Edisher Garakanidze who, together with Joseph Jordania, started to teach people in the UK the wonders of Georgian music, before his tragic death in 1998.

(Gigi is now leading 'New Mtiebi' with wonderful results and the choir now includes children and young people. This is a wonderful example of how music survives and grows out of awful tragedy.) Anyway, I'm sure you'll enjoy the song!

For your information, 'Perkhuli' is simply the name of a round dance and 'Guruli' means that it comes from the Western Georgian region of Guria, on the shores of the Black Sea.
