Violin 1 part from Scenes From The Life of The Prophet -- 3. The Battle of Badar

5 minutes
Modern classical music

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.

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.
