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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

This is a simple arrangement of Chtíc aby spal - aka Vánoční noc - by Adam Vaclav Michna z Otradovic, a 17th century composer. The arrangement takes into consideration choirs with limited technical ability.
Some performance options include performing it as written with the choir joining in on the repeat. Additionally it may be performed by soloists only. I recommend a male voice for the first iteration then a female voice for the second essay; joining together for the final phrase. Or (and preferably) a children’s choir can take the tune each time, adding the choir the second time through. This can also be effectively performed as a unison vocal with a brass quartet playing the SATB parts.
Note: regarding the handbells, they should play the introduction then remain silent until the first ending. And then follow the score on the repeat.
March 2019: you will note some differences between the recording and the score which was recently edited for clarity. The overall effect remains intact.
PUBLISHER’S NOTE: for sales to continue to be viable for the independent publisher with ScoreExchange’s ’multiple print for one price’ sales’ policy, we have had to increase our asking price.
