Yes, it's another Sarabande. The one in the Prelude was slow and respectable, based on Baroque models. However in an earlier period the Sarabande seems to have been a much sexier dance. Apparently it was even banned for a while in Spain for obscenity.

The archaic version of the name, and the slightly faster tempo, should tell you that this Zarabanda leans towards the pre-Baroque model. So if you were planning to listen to it while visualising elegant eighteenth-century dancers with huge powdered wigs, please don't.

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.
