Voicing: Treble Choir

Oseh Shalom is a call for peace. This original setting of “Oseh Shalom” is a joint quest to stop fighting and to share our Earth peacefully.

As continuous conflicts around have been going on continuously throughout the world for thousands of years, the ability to create an eternal state of peace seems nearly impossible. Any “current” situation could be solved and/or easily mediated, should both parties meet with a mutual goal of resolution; peace, however, is far more complicated, as those who have felt “wronged” carry the burden passed on from previous generations.

With so many people on both sides of a conflict carrying-on past legacy, a current resolution usually lacks the comfort of a definitive and absolute resolution.

Description

Oseh Shalom is a call for peace. This original setting of “Oseh Shalom” is a joint quest to stop fighting and to share our Earth peacefully.

As continuous conflicts around have been going on continuously throughout the world for thousands of years, the ability to create an eternal state of peace seems nearly impossible. Any “current” situation could be solved and/or easily mediated, should both parties meet with a mutual goal of resolution; peace, however, is far more complicated, as those who have felt “wronged” carry the burden passed on from previous generations.

With so many people on both sides of a conflict carrying-on past legacy, a current resolution usually lacks the comfort of a definitive and absolute resolution.

Adam’s setting of “Oseh Shalom” reflects the continuous, pent-up tension followed by tentative moments of temporary resolution; while there is a clear and definitive ending to this artistic yet singable composition, it is one that does not attempt to predict our world’s fate. This deeply-rooted tension provides the source for the passion and longing found in our adjoined hearts and souls for eternal peace.

 

While the SSAA provides added color, nuance and complexity, the SA voicing fully maintains the character and beauty of this intense emotional plea.

Oseh Shalom
Hu ya’aseh shalom aleynu
Ve’al kol yisrael
Ve’imru Amen

He who makes peace in his high places
He shall make peace upon us
And upon all of Israel
And say Amen
