Three Pre-Selichot Preludes
NEW!! from ASHBOURNE MUSIC PUBLISHING - IN TIME FOR SELICHOT
Looking for the prefect music to bring your congregation into Selichot? These three pieces for Cantor, amateur choir and keyboard accompaniment are easy to learn and prepare. They can also be sung by solo voice with guitar. Invite your congregation for an hour of fellowship and inspiration.
On the Saturday evening before Rosh Hashanah many congregations invitetheir members to prepare for the Selichot Service which follows. These “Three Pre-Selichot Preludes,” based upon a larger work for Selichot,“The Hush of Midnight: An American Selichot Service,” sets the inspired poetry of laureate poet Ruth F. Brin in a simple but dramatic manner. This beautiful marriage of music and poetry lends itself perfectly to prepare the introspective state of mind prior to the High Holidays. The poetry will lead to meaningful discussion. The music is melodic and centering.
Bring this gift to your congregation this year.

Turn It Off
A fabulous concert opener, Turn It Off!, is just the thing to kick off just about any program. With a nod to barbershop harmonies, the text details the litany of handheld devices that we all ask folks to turn off or silence. Instead of asking, sing it to them instead!
Available in SATB, SSAA and TTBB.
