Ryan Nowlin : Ki Hineih Kachomer

This piyut, a spiritual poem from the 12th century, is inspired by Jeremiah 18:3-6 and Isaiah 64:7. The poets draw on a vivid array of metaphors from everyday life - potters, masons, glass-blowers, sailors - all shaping and guiding their work with their hands and forming the material into new and more beautiful forms.

The New Colossus : SATB : Judith Clurman : David Ludwig : Sheet Music : 50498761 : 884088902278 : 1480340375

Judith Clurman : The New Colossus

Written for conductor Judith Clurman, David Ludwig sets the poem found on The Statue of Liberty in a moving and passionate style. The sentiment of welcome that poet Lazarus - herself an immigrant - conveys is sensitive and at the same time powerful and David has skillfully captured this emotion. Beginning in a somber, chant-like unison, it opens to harmony at the most famous line I lift my lamp, beside the Golden Door repeating this line in a crescendo to the end. It was performed at the 2013 Inauguration Prayer Service at St. John's Church in Washington, D.C.

Judith Clurman : Three Pioneer Songs

Music has always been central to the existence of the Jewish people. These pioneer songs are full of Zionist zeal as they sing about the land they work, the celebrations where they dance, and their hope for the future. This music is important as the original scores were destroyed during World War II. These new scores come directly from the arranger's family.

Judith Clurman : Yeish Kochavim (There are Stars)

Setting the poetry of Israeli heroine and poet Hannah Senesh, this is a song of hope. Those who were lost in the death camps are stars whose light is with us long after their light life has been extinguished. The music reflects this hope as Broadway legend Jonathan Tunick employs his masterful abilities to create the mood.
