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

"Waltzing Matilda" is Australia’s most widely known folk song and one that has been popularly suggested as a potential national anthem.

The song narrates the story of an itinerant worker (swagman)making a drink of tea at a bush camp (billy) and stealing a sheep (jumbuck)to eat. When the sheep’s owner (squatter) arrives with three police officers (troopers) to arrest the worker, he drowns himself in a small lake (Billabong) and goes on to haunt the site.

The tune is most probably based on the traditional Scottish song "Thou Bonnie Wood Of Craigielea".

The original lyrics were written in 1895 by the poet and nationalist Banjo Paterson, and it was first published as sheet music in 1903.

This is a straightforward but useful arrangement for concert band with SATB Choir - It can be used as an accompaniment to the singing of the traditional words with an extra chorus and the key change or used just as an instrumental. If you want additional parts eg Horns in Eb or Trombones in TC, just email me. There is also an optional Piano/Keyboards part with Lead Vocals (see extracted parts) - not on the score…[Score updated Version 3/18-05-2008]
