“Mayim, Mayim” is a rather popular Hebrew folk song, incorporating spoken chant, call and response singing, and highly energetic and rhythmic accompaniment. Written for SATB choir, it is basically a two-part texture with the bass and alto on one line, with the soprano and tenor on the other. Coupled with the flute, accordion, guitar, contrabass (available separately) and percussion (included in the score), this has the potential to provide a rollicking performance for a variety of choirs.
