New Melody for an Old Passover Ditty with female characters!

Here is the sheet music, here are the words with commentary, and here is a recording!

I have not yet seen it sung at a Passover seder, but thanks go out to R’ Hillel Hayyim Lavery-Yisraeli for having pointed out this piyyut to me.

One fun way to do this is to assign each person at the Seder one of the following characters, and they each sing their own lines, but everybody can sing the last line of each stanza:

ASKER

ANSWERER

PRIMEVAL OX/LEVIATHAN

WINE

MOSES

SOLOMON

DAVID

MIRIAM

DEVORAH

ELIJAH

AHARON

Happy Passover!
