David Aron de Sola - Adon Olam

Aron de Sola : Adon Olam

David de Aaron de Sola or David Aaron de Sola (1796 – 1860) (Hebrew: דוד אהרן די סולה) was a rabbi and author, born in Amsterdam. He was descended from a distinguished family of Sephardim, making this a true piece of sephardic music.

De Sola’s melody for Adon Olam is still used in both Sephardi and Ashkenazi synagogues in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.

This arrangement for quartet SATB was released to my Patreon supporters for free, and is also for sale on Score Exchange.

Performance suggestion: if 4 repetitions seem a little much, why not transpose the last up up a whole tone?
