description: Fromm, the German-American neo-classicist, applies his prodigious skills to this simple Chanukah folksong, transforming it into a charming polyphonic madrigal. The other madrigals in this collection (Six Madrigals "Sabbath," "Purim," "Hannukah," "The Ninth Day of Ab," "Passover," and "Sukkot.") are equally fine!
