One of the great universal staples of modern Jewish worship – and one of the most well-known Hebrew songs of all time – is given new life by one of the most exciting new composers of a new generation. Dr. Ginsberg’s lush and tender a cappella setting keeps listeners intent with terrific movement amidst the parts, yet still remains accessible to choirs of any skill level. This is the definitive arrangement of this piece.
A new edition of what is arguably this contemporary Israeli composer’s most popular choral work. We have provided a keyboard reduction to aid in rehearsals. There is also a singable English paraphrase which will be useful to choirs which are less experienced in Hebrew.
A new edition of this piece (formerly released under Transcontinental number 993228), created using additional text recently discovered by the arranger. The melody is a traditional Sephardi tune; the Hebrew text comes from Psalm 118; the French text is by the poet David Levi Alvares. In French and Hebrew.
