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.

(Michinoku is a place so far from here But people say, I can see your shadow by thinking of you deeply)

This is a Japanese traditional poem by Kasano Iratsume from Manyo Book (ca. 1620-1750). Her life story is unknown, but her all 29 poems is the Manyo Book are for Otomo no Yakamochi who was working in the Royal Court. Kasano Iratsume was one of his lover at that time. Michinoku is very far from Kyoto where was the capital in Japan at that time, so people couldn't go there easily. But also this poem is concealed a meaning of "I cannot see you that often even you live very close to me". It is said that Otomo no Yakamochi had so many lovers in those days, and exchanging poems were very common. The choir is set up as two grouops of Sopranos, Altos, Tenors and Basses.
