More High Holiday music! 

09/04/2023 11:46:34 AM


Last week I shared with you a link for some basic Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur cantorial nusach (traditional liturgical melodies). This week I am excited to share a link for a wonderful program that was featured on National Public Radio. It is called "Music for the Days of Awe: An Observance of the Jewish High Holidays". This one hour narrated program contains some absolutely breathe-taking solo and choral masterpieces of the High Holiday liturgy. Among the pieces is a setting of one of my favorite Yom Kippur piyyutim (liturgical poems). This piece was set to music by Judith Clurman who is married to Cantor Bruce Ruben who is the new Spiritual Director of Temple Beth Am. Judith Clurman, am accomplished choral conductor is the musical director of Essential  Voices, USA.  I hope you will all find an hour to enjoy this beautiful music. The piece "Ki Hinei Kachomer" is introduced at minute 39'30" of the recording. Music For The Days of Awe: An Observance of the Jewish High Holidays, NPR
