THE HOLY CITY Text: F.E. Weatherly (1848-1929) Music: Stephen Adams (1844-1913)

The sacred ballads of Stephen Adams, Frances Allitsen, and Samuel Liddle were composed for an Edwardian drawing room, and achieved immense popularity in their day. Michael Maybrick writing under the pseudonym of Stephen Adams was an internationally successful writer of ballads and concert pieces, and was equally well known in London as a concert singer and concert entrepreneur. He collaborated with an equally successful librettist, Fred Weatherly, who was also a successful London barrister. Weatherly also wrote libretti for a number of other celebrated British composers, including Arthur Sullivan, of Gilbert and Sullivan, and Eric Coates, one of the best known of British composers of light music.

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.
