Richard Kaplan
Life of The Worlds - Journeys In Jewish Sacred Music

Order #: 01300
A wonderful follow up to Richard Kaplan & Michael Ziegler's "Tuning The Soul". This new recording by Richard Kaplan, consisting of 18 songs, with a 32-page booklet containing all texts in English, transliteration, and in Hebrew or Yiddish, The songs come from all around the Jewish world.Notable pieces include the ecological lament 'Kinah Lekhurban Gan Eden' and the first recordings in America of a Husyattiner (Polish Hasidic) version of the extended Kabbalistic song 'El Mistater', a Khatsi Kaddish as done in Jerusalem to the tune of the famous Sephardic folksong 'Avram Avinu', a rousing song called 'Le'El Adir Neranenah' from the Afghani Jewish tradition, and a beautiful Moroccan 'Eyn Keloheynu'. The CD represents an honoring of traditional Jewish music, as well as what Rav Abraham Kook called "making the old new." Among the wonderful musicians on the recording is found the voice of the first Moroccan woman rabbi, Rabbi Tsipi Gabbai! Members of such accomplished Klezmer bands as Brave Old World and the San Francisco Klezmer Ensemble appear on the CD, as well as master musicians from Egypt, Morocco, and Israel.Each song has a rather elaborate history detailed in the booklet.
