Ashamnu

The seriousness of the prayer seems at odds with the uptempo catchiness of its melody and sung recitation. Curious if there is any meaning behind this contrast. I’m also wondering who arranged it originally and if orthodox or other denominations do not include this melody in the service. Maybe it’s just me and I expect the song to sound more solemn. That said, it always sticks in my head and I love it.
