Tune Information

Title: ARISE, SHINE (Glass)
Composer: David Loden (1974)
Meter: Irregular
Key: e minor
Copyright: © 1995, Warner/Chappell Music Canada Ltd. Used by permission.


The tune ARISE, SHINE is Israeli in character, moving with speech-like rhythms on the stanzas. The basic and regular half-note movement of the melody contains many repeated notes according to the varying numbers of syllables in the text. Dale Grotenhuis (PHH 4) prepared the harmonization. Have a cantor or choir (in unison) sing the stanzas with the congregation joining on the refrain in unison or harmony. Other instruments are helpful: guitar, strings, and tambourine (on the refrain only). Begin rather quietly, and build each stanza in volume and instrumental activity.
