Yevarechecha - (2010)    

Numbers 6:24-26

for medium voice and guitar

in tribute to Rabbi Solomon Kleinman on the occasion of his ninetieth birthday



[ 3 pages, circa 2' 15" ]



The Lord bless you and keep you.

The Lord deal kindly and graciously with you.

The Lord bestow his His favor upon you and grant you peace.


Rabbi Solomon Kleinman


This is a simple setting with an opening gesture for the guitar to introduce the melisma of the vocal line. Between each sentence of the blessings, the melisma becomes longer and slightly more ornate. The TAB notation is included for those guitarists who prefer this notation.
