The call-and-response nature of the refrain makes assembly participation about as easy as possible; the women of the choir support the assembly and the men provide a bit of easy harmony, all over a relaxed accompaniment. While not requiring an exceptionally large vocal range, the cantor should ideally have a solid low range (down to a low A) with the ability to sustain the upper D at a couple of points in the verses.

For cantor or soloist.
