This joyful harvest song may be of particular interest to choral groups within the Jewish tradition, but it may equally prove to be a useful addition to the harvest or thanksgiving repertoire of any choir. The text is taken from World Healing Prayers, with additional text by Linda G Marcus, adapted by the composer. There’s a brief explanation of the term ‘Sukkos’ in the introduction on the flyleaf. (Please note that the two syllables of ‘Sukkos’ would rhyme respectively with ‘look’ and ‘us’.)
The setting is for mixed choir (SATB) with piano accompaniment. If desired, a children’s choir may join in, singing with the sopranos, and contributing two short passages of their own (in Unison), but the piece will work equally well with just the mixed choir.
