Salamu Aleikum : Choral Music of the Muslim World : SATB : Sheet Music : MMW

Salamu Aleikum : Choral Music of the Muslim World

Muslim choral music? There are numerous examples of group singing in the Muslim world, almost all of which is non-notated. Many of these group singing genres date back several centuries, such as the genre of Arab music called the muwashshahat, a song tradition that started in Muslim Spain and has continued vigorously until modern times. While there are numerous examples of Muslim group singing, notated part-singing is a product of colonization, Westernization, Christianization, and now globalization. It is becoming increasingly popular for composers in the Muslim world to arrange and compose music for the Western-style choir, and this collection serves to introduce participants to the breadth of Muslim culture, some Muslim songs, and the great diaspora of music of the Muslim world through a selection of pieces from different social, and cultural contexts.

Songlist: Ai'Yu, Fog Elna Khel, Adinu, Yal Asmar Ellon, Entarisi Ala Benziyor, Lammaa Badaa Yatathannaa, El-Helwa Di

Various Arrangers : Hebrew Songs : 3 Parts : Sheet Music

Various Arrangers : Hebrew Songs

Cantor Rena Shapiro's take on the Israeli classic "Eili, Eili" is a fantastic a cappella addition to any repertoire. The setting's savvy utilization of just three voices gives it lots of mileage with a beginning choir but provides plenty for an advanced one to work with in terms of expression and nuance. The piece includes sections in both Hebrew and English. The flowing, contrapuntal movement in Cantor Davidson's setting of Psalm 121 ("A song of ascents...") is at once modern and madrigal, and provides options for singing in English, Hebrew, or both. The song S'Vivon depicts the Hanukkah dreydl, a small top with four sides. Each side of the dreydl contains one of the four Hebrew initials of the phrase, "(A) Great Miracle Happened There."

And Miriam Sang (Shiru L'Adonai) : SSAA : Zebulun M. Highben : Sheet Music : 48021195 : 884088627799

Zebulun M. Highben : And Miriam Sang (Shiru L'Adonai)

Based on a biblical text, And Miriam Sang is a song of celebration following Israel's deliverance from Egypt through the Red Sea. It begins in a slow, chant-like manner, and soon shifts to an up-tempo dance-like mood. Although the melodies are original, they incorporate the augmented second interval and melodic formulas common to Hasidic and some Middle-Eastern music. The use of Hebrew text, tambourine and drums add to the authentic feel. Duration: ca. 3:15. Performed by Michigan State University Women's Chamber Ensemble, Sandra Snow, conductor.

El-Helwa Di : SATB : Edward Torikian : Sheet Music : S-450

Edward Torikian : El-Helwa Di

The melody of the song El-Helwa Di was created by Eqyptian composer Sayyid Darwish, (1892- 1923) in Egyptian Arabic, to lyrics by Badih Khayri. Torikian arranged this song for mixed chorus, a cappella, combining harmonic and contrapuntal styles, and rhythms and effects from different traditions. This song represents Egyptian life at the beginning of the twentieth century. Early in the morning, a beautiful woman wakes up to prepare the bread of the day. In the meantime, the sound of the rooster is heard-"ku ku ku ku"-and the entire neighborhood awakens. People begin to greet to each other happily. Their pockets are empty of money, but their mood is calm and peaceful, convinced that hope and patience are good virtues in life, and that God is always present in the hearts of poor people.

Fog Elna Khel : SATB : 0 : Sheet Music : S-320

Fog Elna Khel

Salim Bali heard the song Fo g Elna Khel for the first time in a Syrian Arab Television broadcast in 1966, when the great Iraqi singer Naa al-Ghazali was hosted in a special TV program in Damascus. Initially, and as is the case with most Syrians, the homonymous nature of its title phrase led Bali to think that the words were "Fog el-Na khel" ("High above the palm trees"), despite the fact that the remainder of the lyrics did not have much to do with palm trees. This belief persisted until 2006 when a musician friend informed him of the little known fact that it really is spelled Fo g Elno Khel ("There above, I have an intimate friend"), which, in the Iraqi accent, is pronounced the same.

In Arabic, Koowu means strength. As a child, Maryam Sameer Faheem Khoury's father told her stories about the difficulties he experienced growing up in Palestine. Koowu is about how different her life would be if her father had not moved to the United States. The text of Koowu is symbolically about a caged bird who longs to fly away and find freedom. The modality of the melody hints at the composer's roots; the addition of a dumbek (drum) adds its own authenticity to the ethnic leanings of the piece. A colorful, unique addition to women's repertoire. Dumbek part available as a free download.
