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’ve now produced versions of The Lone Ar-ranger! for a great number of instrumental ensembles, but a version for string quartet has been conspicuous by its absence!

Wearing my concert reviewer’s hat, I recently had the opportunity to meet up with Ruth Rogers and the Iuventus Quartet when they returned to Plymouth University.

I have known Ruth for some time, and have had the pleasure of meeting and reviewing her as a duo, with her Aquinas Piano Trio, as leader of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and, of course, with the Iuventus.

When I sent Ruth my latest review, I attached an MP3 of this arrangement for string quartet, as a possible encore for them some time. Ruth liked what she heard, and asked me to send across the parts.

Even though Sibelius 7 Sounds are pretty damn good, it would be great if the Iuventus could find time to include it in the future. I’d give it a great review, of course!!
