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 Organ Symphony No. 2 is is neo-romantic, extravert but profound, and consists of 5 movements. The 1st one is severe and monumental, moderately fast and in sonata form (but development section and reprise are in one). The 2nd one is very intimate and slow, in Lied form and has a religious atmosphere; two captivating and ever flowing themes can be distinguished. The 3rd one is a playful and very fast scherzo. The 4th one is mysterious and slow, a bit choral-like, and in Lied form. The 5th and final movement is vivid and fast and in sonata form; in the coda the main theme of the 1st movement returns majestically and the piece ends in a solemn way. Registration indications (based upon the Hauptwerk sound set of the Mutin / CavaillĂ©-Coll organ of the Notre Dame in Metz) are intended as a help and are mainly notated as in late French romantic organ music (Widor, Vierne). In 2016 I have revised the piece, checking every registration indication and every bar and I can assure now that the piece is entirely playable (the only problem may be the quick sixteenth notes in the pedals of the Scherzo) and that it will sound great if you follow my registration indications. The recording (digital performance in Sibelius 5 with Garritan Personal Orchestra, not Hauptwerk !) gives, besides the registration indications, a scant indication of the sound I want. Comment on the former SibeliusMusic chat page: "… all I can say that is that your music is so appealing. I miss words to describe my feelings …"
