The elements used to create this piece came from diverse sources, including fragments of a Russian folk melody and a Jewish text, but the message is universal: hope and firm belief will eventually reign victorious over the greatest of odds, be they prejudice, hate, or fear of death. Limited ranges, an a cappella middle section, and a brief narration all contribute to the effectiveness of this accessible song of hope. (The sample recording is the SATB voicing.).
