The Joy of Hanukkah composed by Linda Spevacek. For 3-part mixed choir. Hanukkah. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-1638H).
A best-seller in a new voicing! In the lyrical opening section, we are reminded of the meaning, beauty, and symbolism of Hanukkah. A vigorous, up-tempo section follows, inviting all to experience the excitement of the dreidel game. Just like the dreidel, the music spins and spins. . . right into a surprise ending. There is ample unison, and the program notes may be used as a narration. Refreshingly different and fun! Also available: Two-part (15/1220H).
