Program Notes

When looking for newer Chanukah music, I stumbledupon this gem that was written approximately 20 years ago by composer StephenSchwartz and lyricist Steve Young. Stephen Schwartz is a composer and lyricist who has written several hitBroadway musicals, including Wicked, Pippin, Godspell and others.  He was also the composer and/or lyricist forseveral Disney animated movies.  Thissong has a lovely and poignant melody along with beautiful harmonies.

Holiday, Hanukah, Jewish, Traditional

The Chanukah Song is scored for 4flutes, alto flute (alternate c-flute part included), bass flute and optional contrabassflute (or bass flute 2).  Play theoccasional divisi notes marked in the music to enhance the harmony, if enoughplayers are available.  In this scoring,most of the vocal parts are in Flute 1, 2, 4, and Bass Flute. Some of theinterludes and occasional accompaniment parts can be found in these parts,although most of the accompaniment (and occasional melody) is found in Flute 3and Alto Flute.

Phyllis Avidan Louke is a flutist and award-winning composerand arranger with more than 70 published pieces to her credit.
