This is a beautiful setting of a traditional Hebrew text, a great milti-cultural piece sung entirely in Hebrew. I would use this song to introduce singing in a minor key, perhaps using solfege to set the key and introducing accidentals differentiating between “ra” and “ri,” “fa” and “fi,” “sol” and “si.” There is some very simple parallel third movement in the second half of the song which can be used to introduce part singing. I would highly recommend adding the Bb clarinet when performing this composition.
