Chiri Biri Bim (Israeli Folk Song) arranged by Sally K. Albrecht. Choir Secular. 2-Part Choir. Choral Octavo. Choral Designs. Folk; Jewish Heritage. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.23612).
Energy and handclaps abound in this joyful arrangement of an Israeli folk song. The fun-to-say Hebrew words are translated in the second verse as opposing sections of the choir play a call-and-response game, "When I say l'cha dodi, then you answer chiri biri bim." Perfect for 2-part choirs and equally appropriate for SAB and men's voices. An optional SoundTrax CD adds ethnic authenticity with its jaunty clarinet duet and a dance-like tambourine. Staging is featured on "Follow Me to the Top!" DVD #23853, VHS #23855.
Movement and Staging; Recorded Acc. Available.
