A unique Hanukkah selection, this piece embodies traditional Jewish music with its haunting melodies. In 4/4 time throughout, using easy rhythms, lifts, tremolo, a few two-note slurs, and ties, along with some cello divisi. The viola part doubles the 2nd violin and the cello doubles the bass. This is an excellent teaching piece for dotted-quarter-note rhythms.
The prayer "Al Hanissim" is sung or read at Hanukkah, expressing thanks for the miracles that have been bestowed upon the people's ancestors. A Hanukkah Prayer of Thanks by Susan H. Day will convey a sense of the season. (1:50) This title is available in SmartMusic.
