Incorporating both Hebrew and English texts, this unique setting of a traditional Hanukkah song captures the spirit of that celebration and will add a new dimension to your holiday concert. The minor modality, rhythmic accompaniment, and haunting sound of the clarinet set the stage for a slower middle section which showcases the choir. Then, all parts gradually build toward a rhythmic, festive conclusion.
