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 one is based on the good old C major scale. Two mentors influenced the outcome of this setting. First is Fr. Leo Patalinghug (try Googling him, a talented and colorful priest) who told me many times to keep my psalms simple. In fact he once held a seminar for us St. John, Westminster music leaders to teach us how to perform the Meinrad Psalm Tones.

Anyway, so there are a few of these settings that utilize the scale, you can’t get much simpler than that. And he’s the reason this one is not call and response like the accompaning extended choral version of this psalm setting. He doesn’t like call/response settings. The other mentor is Don Henderson, an excellent music minister who now teaches I believe at the high school or college level. He once told me that when you write for congregational you should write "from C to shining C". Which I can relate to anyway as a bass. I start straining at D, and Eb depends on the syllable and whether or not I’ve been drinking too much coffee that week!

But a great text nonetheless: "I turn to you, Lord, in my time of need, and you fill me with the joy of salvation."

God bless.
