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.

About the Opera nnThis opera represents a narrative that is being worked out in countless congregations across the country. It is the story of two people - one grounded in tradition, the other excited by new conceptions of faith. There is also a third voice, the chorus. On the simplest, human level, it represents the spirit and wisdom of the everyday faithful, who are often caught between the contentions of these two polarities - yet through their steadfast and simple devotion hold possible clues to a resolution. On another level, the chorus also represents the ageless voice of wisdom, reminding us that there is a greater ground of faith which holds us all together in this grand tension while affirming timeless truths. In support of the work�s theme, the score blends new musical ideas with traditional sounds. The tension of this parable - like the real tension felt by many today - is over who truly holds the legitimate interpretation of the faith. The argument is the struggle to find the truth. The argument itself is a sign of life.
