Both settings in this collection (“Hey Harmonika” and “Mayim, Mayim”) have been used with my choirs at the start of the season. Intended to be performed in succession, each piece (although short) can be programmed separately with great integrity. These Hebrew texts of celebration are uniquely set with optional instruments to bring flavor and excitement to any concert. This is a great piece for teaching unison singing, tuning octaves, rhythmic clarity and dynamic contrast. With optional flute, clarinet, bass and percussion. (Easy)
