Unison choir (with piano) - Easy-Medium
Composed by Karen Tarlow. Seven Sabbath Songs, #2. Sacred. Choral octavo. With Text language: English. Published by Treble Clef Music Press (TC.TC-241-247-TC-242).

Item Number: TC.TC-241-247-TC-242

These seven sacred songs are suitable for treble, mixed, or men's choirs, or for solo performance. The texts are taken from various Sabbath services; many are suitable for use as anthems in Christian worship. While all are easy, each has distinctive features-rhythmic extension of a phrase, shifting meters, or harmonic subtleties-which make the set rank very, very high on the "simple does not have to mean stupid" scale. Please, before you buy another boring dreidel song, look at these. The text, from Psalm 96 (the basis for the "Venite" canticle), exhorts all creation to rejoice. The irregular rhythms and harmonic-melodic minor patterns in the choral part give the piece tremendous energy, as does the syncopated and wide-ranging piano accompaniment. Unison; piano; Hebrew; Easy-Med.
