A part of the Doreen Rao series, this original piece weaves an old Hebrew folksong, Shalom Chaverim, into it. The minor melody is simple and beautiful. The song begins in unison and divides in the middle with a round of Shalom Chaverim. The Hebrew text translates, “Peace friends, until we meet again peace.” It is wonderful piece for teaching phrasing and dynamics.
