With his Hebrew Choral Songbook, Ohad Stolarz presents a new collection of classics of the musical repertoire in Hebrew, arranged by him for mixed choir a cappella. Many of these pieces are published in Germany for the first time; almost all of them are first published as choral arrangements. The first volume contains ten sacred and paraliturgical songs that may be sung at various occasions. Among these are the feast of Passover, the “Ten Days of Repentance” in the month of Tishré and the Sabbath. The second volume contains ten secular songs that have become widely known in Israel during the 20th century. These songs are part of Israel’s cultural history and belong to its core repertoire.
All Hebrew lyrics appear in transliteration underneath the music, translations in German and English and comprehensive annotation texts are located in the appendix. This choral songbook therefore allows all interculturally interested choirs to take first steps into the world of Jewish and more generally Hebrew choral music.
“None of Stolarz’s versions are strophic harmonisations; all are through-composed scores with enough variation of texture to satisfy the listener’s ear while ensuring that the original words and melody are not obscured. They are anything but dull.” (Jeremy Jackson, Choir & Organ)
