LIGHTS: MUSIC FOR CHANUKAH by The Zamir Chorale of Boston
Discover the rich musical history of Eastern European Yiddish-language folk music in this recording, an hour of Yiddish favorites. These delightful arrangements for choir include folk songs, tunes from the Yiddish theaters of Second Avenue, and more! The Zamir Chorale is joined by the incomparable talents of Cantors Alberto Mizrahi and Roslyn Barak in a recording that will have you tapping your feet and singing along.
In the summer of 1999, the Zamir Chorale of Boston celebrated its thirtieth anniversary as well as the centenary of the Zamir movement with a concert tour of Eastern Europe. Performances were given in synagogues and churches, concert halls and museums, restaurants and courtyards, cemeteries and concentration camps. In Warsaw, Lodz, Auschwitz, Krakow, Prague, Terezin and Vienna we gave honor to the dead and hope to the living. Our live concert recording, The Songs Live On, is a witness to the excitement and spiritual intensity of our odyssey.
This unique recording includes selections from Zamir Chorale's 1999 European tour. Recorded during live performances in Lodz, Vienna, Prage, Krakow, and Terezin, these songs celebrate the return of Zamir to the land of its birth. Ranging from liturgical settings to popular songs, spanning four centuries, and representing composers from seven countries, the tour repertoire demonstrates the breadth and quality of Jewish music for Jewish and non-Jewish audiences alike. The Songs Live On captures the energy of these live performances and the enthusiasm of both Zamir and of the audiences. If you couldn't join Zamir in Europe, this is your chance to share in the music.
This album presents a sampling of z'mirot (Sabbath table songs) from various traditions and in various styles. Some of these z'mirot are presented as they were originally conceived, simple folksongs intended for families to sing as they sat around the Sabbath table. In other cases, the traditional melodies are presented in artistic choral arrangements. Some selections are newly composed works, reflecting contemporary responses to the ancient texts.
Features breathtaking arrangements of Sabbath z'mirot, niggunim, songs and prayers. Joshua Jacobson, director.
From the first notes of this remarkable recording you'll know it's not the "same old Chanukah music." With joyful exuberance, Julie Silver brings a refreshing new sound to many of our Chanukah favorites. Weaving threads of rock and folk with musical traditions from around the globe, the innovative arrangements and Julie's clear, soulful vocals perfectly capture the powerful message and enduring spirit of Chanukah. An instant favorite for listeners of all ages!
