Max Stern: Prayer for Israel for 4-part choir a cappella (1988)(6:52)
text: Liturgy

Prayer for Israel is the newest addition to the prayer book. Written shortly after the establishment of the State of Israel by Nobel Prize author S.J. Agnon on request from the Chief Rabbi Nissim and Prime Minister David Ben Gurion, it invokes protecting peace and Divine blessing upon the Holyland and it people.

Max Stern: Magnificat Hebraica (1996) (12:57)
for 8-part a cappella mixed choir
Hallelujah (2:49)
Amen (2:29)
Kaddish (7:38)

Magnificat Hebraica is based upon liturgical responses Hallelujah, Amen, and the traditional Hebrew-Aramaic Doxology, Kaddish. Its antiphonal choral textures derive from a synthesis of ancient psalmody and contemporary vocal sonority. The sacred texts voice universal Sanctification and Redemption.
