The CSS Alabama was built in Great Britain for the Confederate Navy. In her two years of service, she wreaked havoc in the Gulf of Mexico, the Carribean and the Atlantic Ocean sinking 62 ships and disrupting trade routes. Legends, tales and folk songs about the Alabama came from as far away as South Africa. The CSS Alabama, a screw sloop with sail power as well as steam, finally met her match on June 11, 1864 when she was attacked and sunk by the USS Kearsarge of the coast of Cherbourge, France.

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.
