Shenandoah is a traditional American sea song that traces its roots first as a river song, and possibly as a land-based song before that. The Shenandoah referred to in the title (and the lyrics, missing here) was an Indian chief who lived adjacent to the Missouri River. The lyrics tell of a white man who loved the chief’s daughter, but whose suit was forcefully opposed by the chief. Some versions have the suitor pining away for the Indian maiden, others have him getting the chief drunk on whiskey and stealing the maiden away.

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.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
