Remember Us for Life

אקוֽﬞדﬞראמוﬞס אלה בﬞידﬞה | Aˈkọđṛạmọs ˈạḷạ ˈvịđạ | Remember Us for Life is a ה | təfịˈḷàh | prayer sung during the יָמִים נוֹרָאִים | Yàˈmịm Nọṛàˈ’ịm | Days of Awe.

The lyrics of the prayer are from the traditional מַחזוֹר | mạħˈzọṛ | cycle of prayer books for major Jewish festivals. There is also a version with Hebrew lyrics, which is called זָכְרֵנוּ | Zàk͡hˈṛénụ | Zokhrenu Remember Us.

The melody, in G harmonic minor, is based on a traditional Ashkenazi melody, with its rhythm adjusted to fit the Sephardic pronunciation.

In this SATB arrangement by David ben Or, the alto carries the traditional melody, accompanied in parallel thirds by the soprano. The bass answers imitatively one bar later, accompanied likewise by the tenor in parallel thirds.
