This new edition of Louis Landowskis’s “Ki Onu Amecho” brings new life to works that have become standard fare in Jewish services. Both of these settings, contained in the same octavo, contain rich, beautiful melodies and subtle texture changes, allowing for a strong focus on the text. The text itself is a litany of possessions for both earthly and heavenly entities. “We are your people, and you are our God, your children, our Father…” Primarily monophonic, this would be suitable for most church or school choirs, and is a great exposure to the rich world of Jewish liturgical music.
