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.

I have recorded this song now and it is available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.


Jingle Maria is an idea I have been working on for a while. It is a new carol - full of bounce and fun - I’m seeking to fuse latin styles with rock instruments, choir and string orchestra. The level of difficulty is not too difficult but easier parts can always be assigned to 2nd violin and harder parts reassigned to 1st or dropped an octave as necessary. I needed the score to make sense from a cascading point of view hence the higher notes.

This score is full of bounce and it will be fun to play. It combines latin styles with rock instruments, choir and string orchestra in a cheeky and cheerful song. I really wanted to do a sort of Mantovani thing too…. The electric guitar part has a couple of biggish stretches which might prove interesting for smaller hands depending on the fretboard length and width. The solution, if too difficult to reach all three notes, would be to omit the highest note of the chord which is doubled by the strings anyway!

Purchasers are reminded permission is needed for public performance and recording.
