Sound the Great Shofar was commissioned by Koleinu, Boston’s Jewish Community Chorus, to commemorate their tenth anniversary. It was composed in Brookline, Massachusetts and completed in November of 2011. The text is in Hebrew and English. The Hebrew text is from Psalms and the Amidah. The English text was transcribed and adapted from interviews with four members of Koleinu: Bonnie Glickman, Ronda Goodale, I. Larry Morris and Alan Teperow.
