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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

’’Oh My Dearest Daddy’’ from Gianni Schicchi, arranged for Eb Alto Saxophone & Piano.
"O mio babbino caro" ("Oh My Dear Papa") is a soprano aria from the opera Gianni Schicchi (1918), by Giacomo Puccini, to a libretto by Giovacchino Forzano. It is sung by Lauretta after tensions between Schicchi and his prospective in-laws have reached a breaking point that threatens to separate her from Rinuccio, the boy she loves. It provides a contrasting interlude expressing lyrical simplicity and single-hearted love in the atmosphere of hypocrisy, jealousy, double-dealing and feuding in medieval Florence of Puccini’s only comedy, and it provides the only set-piece in the through-composed opera.
Florence Easton as Lauretta at the world premiere of Gianni Schicchi, 14 December 1918.The aria was first performed by the popular Victorian English soprano Florence Easton (premiere 14 December 1918). It has been sung subsequently by many sopranos such as Frances Alda, Victoria de los �ngeles, Kathleen Battle, Montserrat Caballé, Maria Callas, Renée Fleming, Angela Gheorghiu, Dame Joan Hammond (who won a Gold Record in 1969 for 1 million sold copies of this aria), Dame Malvina Major, Carmen Monarcha, Anna Netrebko, Leontyne Price, Patricia Racette, Dame Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, and Renata Tebaldi.
