description: Zahavi’s classic song reflects the Israeli pioneers’ joy in reclaiming the wilderness through reforestation, agriculture and irrigation. It has a strong dance-like rhythmic verse and charming modality. Alica Parker’s choral setting captures and expands on the verse of the original with clever syncopated countermelodies.
