Description

This arrangement combines two melodies that, at first glance, seem completely unrelated in temperament. “Come O Long Expected Jesus” is based on the hymn tune JEFFERSON, an early American tune first published in Alexander Johnson’s Tennessee Harmony in 1818. “Sim Shalom” is a traditional Yiddish folk song and blessing.

The chords are fantastic and the introduction is so good.

From Christa: I was struck by how much these two separate melodies from different cultures share – not just a modal melody with similar harmonies – but a shared longing for redemption through peace, hope, healing and light. This is an ideal choice of music for an interfaith service.
