Co-author
Co-author

The Hallel of the Hungarian Jews is divided into two parts: the first six sections are in recitative style, the next five sections are metrical, and the 12th section is again recitative. The recitatives are derived from the maqam principle, but the metrical tunes may be considered folk songs, and are influenced by other cultures.

Cantares de SefaradI (SMR Bresler Collection)

Piso oro, piso plata
Por las calles de su dama
Peinando 'stava la reina
Odeja ki anitani
Estávase la mora
Arvolikos d'almendra - Ia salió de la mar la galana - Una matika de ruda
Tres ijas tiene el rei
Bibaruenya
En la mar ai una torre
Kien supiense i entendiense
Kuando el rei Nimrod
A la una nasi io
Tres ermanikas eran
Siete fijos tiene Hanna
