“ . . . a perfect rest”

by

Laurence Bitensky



. . . a perfect rest is based on a traditional melody for El Male Rachamim, the Jewish memorial prayer. The prayer and its
melody have a long and painful history. During the bloody Chmielnitzki pogroms of 1648, four Jewish communities were
captured by the Tatars. When the cantor, or chazzan, Hirsch of Zywotow, chanted the prayer El Male Rachamim, the
congregation burst into tears, moving the Tatars to release the three-thousand Jews. A similar story told of the chazzan
Solomon Rasumny of the Russian town of Kishinev. In 1903, Czarist officials organized a wave of anti-Semitic violence against
a population already left impoverished from Czarist laws restricting Jewish rights. Jews were massacred, homes and
synagogues were destroyed, and thousands of Jews were left homeless. As a response, the Kishinev chazzan Rasumny
composed a melody for El Male Rachamim. This melody has been preserved and forms the basis for . . . a perfect rest. His
stirring composition shows the intense emotional power of the East European cantorial style known as chazzanut. The opening
cello solo is a free adaptation of the melody followed by what is essentially one long orchestral interpretation, commentary, and
variation.


A translation of the original Hebrew prayer is as follows:

O God full of compassion,
Who dwells on high --
Grant a perfect rest under the wings of Your Presence,
Among the heights of the holy and pure, who shine
as the brightness of the firmament,
To the righteous souls who have passed into eternity.
For the sake of prayer and supplication,
For the remembrance of their souls,
In Paradise may they rest.

We beseech you, O Lord of compassion --
Shelter them under the cover of your wings forever,
And may their souls be bound up in the bond of eternal life --
the Eternal is their inheritance --
And may they rest in peace in their graves,
And let us say Amen.

Performance notes
The many tempo and metric indications are approximate only and are designed to facilitate a free, quasi-improvisational character.
Since the piece is influenced by East European chazzanut, some of its spirit of metrically free improvisation should be maintained.
