זָכְרֵנוּ | Zàk͡hˈṛénụ | Remember Us is a תְּפִלָּה | 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 Ladino lyrics, which is called אקוֽﬞדﬞראמוﬞס אלה בﬞידﬞה | Aˈkọđṛạmọs ˈạḷạ ˈvịđạ | Acódramos ala Vida Remember Us for Life.
The melody, in the Jewish scale, is based on a traditional Ashkenazi melody, with its rhythm adjusted to fit the Sephardic lyrics.
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.
