A GOOD SOUND for A GOOD DEED
Actively engaged in composing and performing music, particularly Jewish music, for nearly ¾ of a century, I finally picked out my top tunes and put them in a book. Tara Publications issued it a few years ago. It’s called Songs for My People, and it includes music for the theater, the synagogue and the concert hall. Here you’ll find solos, duets and choral arrangements, complete with piano scores and/or guitar chords. Songs to celebrate the holidays of the Jewish year. And songs to dramatize some occasions in our lives and our history. More laughs than tears. 40 numbers for musicians both professional and amateur to browse through, to sing along with and enjoy. Music to raise the curtain – or to raise the soul. Some of the compositions in this book are already recorded. Others are available with permission. You can hear some samples on my personal website, http://cantorabbi.com .
In today’s market, any one of these compositions as sheet music would cost a few bucks. You can get all 40 for $18 and it’s all tax free! That’s because the books belong to the Cohon Memorial Foundation, and donations are fully deductible. Check out the Foundation on our website, www.cohonaward.com and you’ll see how you can do a good deed – and get a good sound!
