An upbeat, fun a cappella piece with a first-half-of-20th-century-in-Israel feel (post-chalutzim/pioneers). Famously recorded by Shoshanna Damari. Wilensky was a patriotic Zionist and emigre from Poland who wrote inspiring compositions and arrangements for a modern Israel. This setting of Isaiah 52:1 is at home in any concert setting. Also excellent for high school, university, or community choir level ensembles.
