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 was a realization from a piano score, with some counter melodies added. I have tried to give this very well known carol a Victorian feel with the simple orchestra and over the top brass and altglocken at the end. While this arrangement - for the sake of economy of scale in the score - has no vocal line or lyrics, they are freely available elsewhere. I may well upload a vocal part later! (These MP3 vocals are only an idea of how it works. My intention is to record the vocal properly and remix later).

It should be fun for any amateur orchestra to play in its own right as a piece and in this (transposed) key is good for a (competent) alto or bass/baritone soloist to sing.

Notes about the composer.

Adolphe Charles Adam (July 24, 1803 � May 3, 1856) was a French composer and music critic. He is best known today for his ballets Giselle (1844) and Le Corsaire (1856, his last work), his operas Le postillon de Lonjumeau (1836), Le tor�ador (1849) and Si j’�tais roi (1852, often regarded as his finest work), and his Christmas carol Minuit, Chr�tiens! (O Holy Night) (1847). Adam was also a noted teacher. L�o Delibes was among his pupils.
