|Instructions and Definitions
Online music is made available using the SCORCH™ technology. When you purchase a piece of music online, you are, therefore, buying a SCORCH™ document.
SCORCH™ documents (samples and full scores) are
Different categories of music come with permission to make different numbers of photocopies of the printed copy purchased. For example, if you purchase one handbell piece, you have permission to make 9 additional photocopies; if you purchase one hymn, you may make 99 additional photocopies; if you purchase one anthem, you may make no additional photocopies; etc.In each case, you will only print one copy from your printer.
If you purchase two (2) copies of the same hymn, you will print it out once, but have permission to make 198 additional photocopies, because each printed copy purchased comes with permission to make an additional 99 photocopies.
If you purchase 30 copies of an anthem, you will print it out once, but have permission to make 29 additional photocopies (because you purchased 30 copies). This saves wear and tear on your printer.
The following explains how many photocopies you are permitted to make after purchasing one copy in each category:
Anthem: 0 (you must purchase the number of photocopies required for each member of the choir)
Children’s Song: 1 (purchase one, make one for the accompanist; teach the song to the children by rote)
Choral Response: 0 (you must purchase the number of photocopies required for each member of the choir)
Congregational Hymn: 99 (purchase one for each 100 members in your worship service)
Handbell Music: 9 (purchase one, make up to nine additional photocopies for the group)
Instrumental Parts: Depends upon the number of instruments (purchase one, and make one additional photocopy for each instrumentalist)
Organ Solo: 0 (play from the purchased copy)
Piano Solo: 0 (play from the purchased copy)
Vocal Solo: 1 (purchase one, make one for the accompanist)
Instrumental Solo: 1 (purchase one, make one for the accompanist)
Try before you buy!
Click on a category (Anthem, for example), then click on one of the various titles. If you have not already done so, you will be prompted to download the free SCORCH™ Player. (This Player will work in the background as soon as downloaded and installed. Any time you click on a title – now or in the future – the Player will automatically appear, ready to demonstrate the selected piece of music.)
Once the Player is downloaded, you will be able to see the actual music on your computer screen. Press the Play button(>) and you will hear the music played through your computer’s sound device. (NOTE: the quality of the sound is dependent upon the device chosen. If you have several playback devices, you may choose whichever one sounds the best for you.)
You will also be able to print a sample page*. This will be the first page of music with the words "Scorch Sample" printed across the music. (Print a sample page of any piece of music to make sure your equipment is compatible with this technology.)
You may transpose most pieces of music by clicking the "Transpose" button on the SCORCH™ toolbar. This will allow you to see and hear it in its transposed form before you buy**. (NOTE: Transposition may cause minor layout problems.)
When you decide to purchase
Add the piece to your shopping cart. Be sure to indicate the desired number of copies (see above!) Continue shopping or pay for your purchase(s) and check out.
When you check out, select the title(s) you purchased by clicking on them. The SCORCH™ Player will reappear. When you press the Print button this time, the entire score will print out without the "Scorch Sample" watermark.
* Except on one-page scores
** Transposition will need to be reset to the desired key after purchase.
