Raisins and Almonds

From Plank Road Publishing

adapted/arr. Karl Hitzemann

"Raisins and Almonds" is an old Jewish lullaby written in 1880 by Abraham Goldfaden. It speaks of a snowy white goat that goes to the market to bring raisins and almonds - luxury items at the time - to a child during the night. The melody is very sweet and almost haunting.

Our setting of this piece makes it into a partner song. Part 1 features Goldfaden's melody. Part 2 is an original melody which uses the same lyrics. And, of course, since it's a partner song, the two melodies are sung together the third time through the song. The accompaniment features clarinet, flute, piano, bass, solo cello, and strings. We've provided you with a full, playable piano part, as well as the cued cello solo, but the recorded accompaniment really sets the mood for this song. (from Music K-8, Vol. 20, No. 4)
