This magnificent arrangement by John Leavitt is one of my favorite settings of this beloved Jewish song. “A song of sadness and of hope that next year, the new year, will be better.” Bashana Haba’h is available in SAB, SATB, SSA, or TTBB and an Instrumental Pak with parts for clarinet, violin, cello, and bass. The YouTube link above is to a recording of a more up-tempo version of this song. This could provide material for an interesting lesson in comparing and contrasting two unique arrangements of the same work.
