An arrangement of the national anthem of South Sudan in progress!

In preparation for the upcoming independence referendum in January, 2011, the South Sudan National Anthem Committee asked a group of 49 writers to come up with an anthem for the country. After being guidelines by the army and government, which stated that the anthem had to include mentions of its history, people, and resources, as well as being told about the struggle for independence, lyrics were then chosen by means of a televised competition. Originally under the working title “Land of Cush” (in reference to a Biblical kingdom which is roughly located in the area of South Sudan), the lyrics were revised several times in the following months after the successful independence referendum, and a final version was settled in March, 2011, which slightly altered the wording (among other things replacing the word “Cush” with “South Sudan”).

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.
