SB------------------------------------------------------- "May the Words"- 'set to music the lyrics of the 19th Psalm, The music was written in the mid-50's by my father and is used in synagogues throughout the country. He wrote it while walking in a country road in northern Michigan. In 1991, I wrote a countermelody for this arrangement of May the Words. The improvisational portion of this tune utilizes the darker chord changes of the countermelody and is meant to reflect humankind's continuing desire to "Be acceptable unto you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer"' Jeff Haas from his liner notes to the CD.------------------------------------------------------------------------1.
