Hanukkah at home

How familiar are you with that one famous drop of oil that lasted eight days and nights?

As holiday concerts become increasingly “multi-traditional”, many audiences anticipate hearing a piece that celebrates the miracle of Hanukkah. Scott Henderson‘s original composition Flame of Faith (A Hanukkah Song), with lyrics by Linda Marcus, both inspires and informs regarding the observance of this Jewish holiday. Henderson has a knack for writing elegant and engaging melodies supported by colorful harmonic progressions, and this piece exemplifies his wonderful musicality and keen sensibility regarding the treatment of text.

Flame of Faith is available for both mixed chorus and men’s chorus. Click on the links to view the first 6 pages of each score.
