page one of the Oboe part from Scenes From The Life of The Prophet -- 3. The Battle of Badar

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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

Full details

In the year 622, Mohammed and his followers have been chased from Mecca north to Yathrib (now called Medina), where they survive by ambushing and hijacking the caravans on the route from Syria to Mecca. When word of a particularly wealthy caravan reaches Mohammed, he has it lured into an ambush by filling the water holes along its route with sand. This arouses suspicion, and an army is called up from Mecca to defend the caravan. A tremendous battle ensues, and although greatly outnumbered, the Muslims win the battle through Divine intervention in the form of 4000 angels.

The eerie scene open in the desert before dawn. Prayers are offered. Then, the caravan can be heard, slowly approaching.
