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

This piece for flute and string quartet was written for Rachel Johnson, my Head of Music. She has breathed new life into the music department in my school for which I am eternally grateful.

Each movement represents some aspect of her character and includes musical references to both Carin (the other Johnson) and myself.

1. The Gift, represents Rachel’s bubbly buoyant character, and gift of music. The movement is in a classical style to reflect her training as a classical flautist.

2. The Blessing, is a reference to her strong religious beliefs and to the calmer and more contemplative side of her nature. The canonical entries create a restful atmosphere over which the beautiful flute melody can soar.

3. The Joy, is a fast-paced Latin-influenced movement that shows Rachel’s interest in modern Jazz music and also her tendency to rush around the department like a blonde tornado!
