description: This traditional Ashkenazic folksong is about the “sevivon” or “dreydel,” a children’s spinning toy for Chanukah. Barnett’s engaging setting utilizes snappy rhythms and jazz harmonies, but is not too difficult to learn. This octavo is part of a four-movement suite of songs for Chanukah, “Arise and Be Free.”
