Die Makamen in der hebraeischen Poesie der orientalischen Juden

"The Maqamat in the Hebrew Poetry of the Oriental Jews" A frequent feature in Hebrew poems of Oriental Jews is a subtitle which mentions a maqam according to which the poem is to be sung. The article is an explanation of these subtitles; it is intended mainly for scholars of Hebrew poetry, and contains no musical examples. Musicians would do well to consult it, since it features a concise and clear explanation of the Arabic maqamat system.
