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

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

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

She Stoops to Conquer is a comedy by the Irish author Oliver Goldsmith, son of an Anglo-Irish vicar, first performed in London in 1773. The play is a great favourite for study by English literature and theatre classes in Britain and the United States.

This was actually my first ever commission. A college friend was staging a production of She Stoops To Conquer and wanted Tony to sing the drinking song in the script. She could not find a tune and asked me to write one with a limited vocal range for the young actor who only had about an octave! (The range D-D is not quite high enough for tenor but would suit a newly broken voice or light baritone with little singing experience).

At that point she did not need an accompaniment - that is a recent addition. I have since found the lyrics on-line in the Irish Treasury of Song but to this date still no tune. I hope my tune would not be too out of place in this period of time. I added a fiddle tune as a reference in time - they call for harp and fiddle in The Beggar's Opera which is of a similar date. Harper's these days are pretty rare however, so the accompaniment is for piano….
