En Kelohenu
p. 229, Book of Prayer, ed. David de Sola Pool

This tune is best known as the chorus “See the Conquering Hero Come" from Georg Frideric Handel's oratorio Judas Maccabeus, which gives it a connection to ’Hanukkah. The chorus was borrowed from Handel's earlier oratorio Joshua. The tune is thought by some musicologists not to have been composed by Handel, but to have originated in the Armenian church.
