Choral SoundTrax CD
An optional clarinet adds a festive flourish to this traditional Hebrew folk song arranged expressly for 3-part mixed singers. This specifically targeted voicing pays close attention to the most appropriate range and tessitura for developing voices, especially the guys. Four short lines comprise an entirely Hebrew text that celebrates the miracle of Hanukkah and the spinning dreidel (a pronunciation guide is included). “S'vivon sov, sov, sov” means “Dreidel turn, turn, turn.” Excitement abounds throughout, especially when a surprise slower section accelerates back to the first lively tempo, and then even faster for the final phrase.
