In this piece, Louis Lewandowski has given us one of the most gorgeous melodies ever composed. The line simply flows like so few melodies seem to do. The rise and fall of the melody is almost achingly beautiful.
Composed originally for the synagogue as a setting for the Hebrew text of Psalm 92:13-16, it suits the human voice well, as well as all manner of instruments.
For this version, we have kept the piano accompaniment very simple. There is an optional repeat to make the piece a bit longer.
This piece could also be used with oboe or flute.
MP3 sound sample: entire piece without repeat (synthesizer/midi).
