"Kumbayah" (Gullah, "Come By Here", or "Kum ba yah") is a traditional African-American spiritual. It enjoyed newfound popularity during the folk revival of the 1960s and became a standard campfire song in Scouting and other nature-oriented organizations. The song was originally associated with human and spiritual unity, closeness and compassion, and it still is in many places around the world. Robert Miller�s Brethren Brass arrangement is meant to be a pleasant and unexpected harmonic journey. Listen to the MP3 recording by The Brethren Brass for a "real" and accurate performance.

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

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

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.
