Sheet Music

Salamone Rossi, Elohim Hashiveinu HZ-028 (12 pp.) $1.75
Salamone Rossi was the first musician in modern times to compose a collection of choral motets in Hebrew for the synagogue. Published in Venice in 1623, Elohim Hashiveinu displays a blend of Renaissance polyphony and Baroque ornamentation with a creative sensitivity to the Hebrew Psalm text. This unique edition provides singers with both full score and part books. (SATB, Hebrew, med)
Salamone Rossi, Adon Olam HZ-045 (27 pp.) $2.75
Published in Venice in 1623 in the anthology, HaShirim Asher LiSh’lomo, Adon Olam is composed in the style of cori spezzati, church music in which two choirs are separated spatially, enhancing the antiphonal effect of the music. Yet Rossi displays a reverence for and a creative sensitivity to the Hebrew hymn text. This unique edition provides singers with both full score and part books. (SATB/SATB, Hebrew, med)
Salamone Rossi, Kaddish HZ-046 (18 pp.) $2.00
Another work from the 1623 anthology, HaShirim Asher LiSh’lomo, Kaddish is composed in the style of the balletto, the most popular form of vocal music in early seventeenth-century Italy. Thus Rossi imparts a joyous mood to his setting of the Hebrew doxology. This unique edition provides singers with both full score and part books. (SSATB, Hebrew, med)
