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

The seventh movement in my Requiem - my first major work. I'm only 16, so don't expect perfection! This movement starts to conclude the Requiem, returning to the main themes of Introit, Pie Jesu and Dies Irae, while elements of the Offertorium and Agnus Dei feature more subtly (the Sanctus is not quoted due to the fact that it was the last movement to be written). This movement also features the first of only two 'funereal' parts in the Requiem. I agreed with Faure's idea of death not being an end, and more of a doorway, so while the overall feeling of the piece is mournful (and in the case of the Dies Irae, terrifying), there is a sense of hope. As such, there are very few traditionally funereal parts in the piece. Personally my least favourite, but don't let that put you off.
