Bloch's, Prayer composed in 1925 is sub-titled “From Jewish Life” and is originally written for Cello and Piano. Its Hebraic sounds are beautiful on the Euphonium with its rich sound. The work (Bass Clef) is about six minutes in length and recommended for advanced performers. It sets a deeply religious mood; reflective, pleading and expressive. Playable by most college students it is a perfect addition to a recital, jury or concert.
