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

'Rombald's Moor', is inspired by the spectacular scenery above the West Yorkshire spa town of Ikley. The most prominent feature of Ilkley Moor, also called Rombald's Moor, is the Cow and Calf Rocks, a rocky outcrop of millstone grit. It has been suggested that the name originates from the tradition of lighting beacons on the rocks. The larger rock was once called the Inglestone Cow, the word ingle meaning fire or flame. A place of legend, local folklore tells how the rocks gained their present form. A giant named Rombald used these moors on his route from the East to West Coast. In one story, chased by an enemy he jumped on the rock above Ilkley, splitting the calf from the main body of rocks and leaving his footprint on top of the outcrop. An alternative version tells of Rombald stamping on the rocks after arguing with his wife! Rombald's Moor is a place of power, strength and beauty, characteristics evoked in the music by this magical landscape.
