Hallellujah, violin concertos, a little girl’s way of expressing joy, and the famous violin song are all part of the story of a girl named Elizabeth.
The story begins in the early 1800s when a young girl named Emily was born with a rare form of epilepsy that made it difficult for her to speak.
Elizabeth, then just a toddler, developed a series of seizures, including one where her eyes started to bleed.
The first time she heard a violin playing, she screamed.
It was the Hallelluja.
It’s not the first time a child with epilepsy has been a fan of music.
In the 1930s, the German composer Johann Sebastian Bach wrote a song that included a line that reads, “Halleluyah, haleluyah!”
The phrase was inspired by a German expression used to express happiness when something is happening.
Today, a new song by the American violinist Tanya Gevinson has gained attention for its use of the Hällellelujah string motif.
The song is named after the song that plays in the background of the famous opera by composer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and is written by a young American named Tanya.
Tanya Givinson told the New York Times that she wanted to incorporate the phrase because of the way it expresses a child’s joy.
“When you’re with a child and you’re in a situation that’s really challenging, it’s so easy to feel a little bit sad, but you also know that you’re not going to die,” she said.
“It’s a very emotional response that is so easy and so simple.”
Tanya said that she has been writing songs with the Hala song for about 10 years.
She said that it’s one of the most important songs for her and her daughter, who have both had seizures.
“My daughter has had several of these,” she told the Times.
“Her mother and I were both on the road for almost two weeks.
They’re very anxious, but I knew that she was having seizures, so it was just a matter of trying to write songs that are very comforting for them.”
According to Givison, there’s a lot to this song.
“I’m a very, very musical person,” she explained.
“This song has a very specific feel to it and I feel that I could have been singing it any day.
I’ve sung it with my son who’s also in a very difficult situation.
We’re all very aware of the music that we are in and it is the music, and it’s very specific.”
The Hala string theme, and a song written by Tanya, are part of an exhibit at the New Orleans Public Library, titled The Hala String: A New Orleans Collection of Music, that explores the musical and cultural history of New Orleans and the history of the city.
The show runs through August.
