Voices in PrayerVoices in Prayer

Songbook and Reference CDs

Voices in Prayer, published in 2007, includes 50 of Carol’s original, congregation-friendly liturgically-based melodic songs in a beautiful 72-page, professionally-printed perfect-bound songbook of sheet music and chords for optional guitar or improvised piano accompaniment. The songs, 30 of which are published here for the first time, were arranged by Adrian A. Durlester and edited by Sarah Brett England.  Most are presented in unison including Carol’s Shalom Aleichem which was a winner in the Shalshelet Festival for New Jewish Liturgical Music – although Voices in Prayer also includes some rounds as well as a 2-part choral version of Nakum Uvaninu (Let Us Rise Up and Build) and a fun, 1950’s-style 3-part choral Yism’chu. You’ll find repertoire for Shabbat, Havdalah, Rosh Chodesh, Torah services, and High Holy Day services as well as special events.  This songbook is an invaluable resource and a tremendous value!
