Or Zarua No.2 (lively setting)

Psalm 97:11

אוֹר, זָרֻעַ לַצַּדִּיק, וּלְיִשְׁרְי לֵב שִׂמְחָה

“Light is sown for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart.”

I wrote a completely different setting of Or Zarua during the same 24 hour period; it’s a more contemplative version. It’s interesting to explore the same verse from different angles!

You can also hear my other musical settings of Jewish texts on light here.
