Various Arrangers : Hebrew Songs : 3 Parts : Sheet Music Collection

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."

Songlist: Eili, Eili, Shir Hama'alot, S'Vivon

Solstice : Winter Solstice

Veteran all-women septet, and one of our favorite World/Folk groups, we watched Solstice do the Bay Area proud by winning the Regional and placing 3rd in the 2007 National Finals. Urged by their friends and families to release a Holiday CD, the group finally and happily fulfilled this longtime dream, and Becca, Emily, Kim, Krista, Lark, Mari & Sara did it wonderfully! Choosing little-known, difficult classical tunes like Cortland Bender's lovely "Rosa Mystica," Francisco Guerrero's "A Un Nino Llorando Al Hielo" and Thomas Weelkes' "To Shorten Winter's Sadness," from the 15th and 16th centuries; beautifully arranged traditional carols like Bernard de la Monnoye's "Patapan," "Deck the Hall," and Franz Gruber's "Silent Night;" and popular Christmas songs like Vince Guaraldi's "Christmas Time is Here," Tommie Connor's "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" and Alfred Burt's "Caroling, Caroling;" along with the rich traditional Hebrew song "S'Vivon" and other favorites, make "Winter Solstice" a very special 15-cut collection that is sure to brighten your holiday for years to come!

S'vivon : 3-Part Mixed : Andrew Parr : Digital : 00-48871 : 038081561950

Andrew Parr : S'vivon

An optional clarinet adds a festive flourish to this traditional Hebrew folk song arranged expressly for 3-part mixed singers. This specifically targeted voicing pays close attention to the most appropriate range and tessitura for developing voices, especially the guys. Four short lines comprise an entirely Hebrew text that celebrates the miracle of Hanukkah and the spinning dreidel (a pronunciation guide is included). "S'vivon sov, sov, sov" means "Dreidel turn, turn, turn." Excitement abounds throughout, especially when a surprise slower section accelerates back to the first lively tempo, and then even faster for the final phrase.
