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

Since the pentatonic scale is native to virtually all folk cultures of the world, it lends itself particularly well to this text. For the contrasting sections of the music, the prohibitive triton is chosen for its apt conveyance of Hebert�s sentiment that height and depth can be overcome through a determined effort. The Flute and the Tuba represent the opposite spectrums of distance. Within this space, singers� praise may either �grow� or �fly.� The Marimba is a suitable voice for the pentatonic scale and can be claimed as an instrument by cultures of "every corner" of the world. A text with such an imperative tone requires a commanding voice, a voice the Trumpet and Trombone possess.

Herbert�s text transcends religious usage; the church is singled out, but notice the burden on the heart. �Let all the world�,� what a profound call! What better way for the world to end its ceaseless wars than for its �every corner� to a contribute a line of counterpoint, or a voice of harmony to a song of shared commonality, in which we glorify not ourselves over others, but instead, in submission to the shared song, we sing in pursuit of a reality greater than ourselves?
