The phrase “instant classic” is not something to be tossed around lightly – but it's the perfect one to use here. “From the Peak of Mount Scopus”, Applebaum's setting of Avigdor Hameiri's ode to Jerusalem, has beautiful harmonic structure complementing a melody reminiscent of the great Israeli folk songs that have stood the test of time. This piece is a sure bet to do the same. For SATB choir with keyboard accompaniment.
