Obadiah the Proselyte

Mi-al har horev from the manuscripts of Obadiah the Proselyte

The preparation of this song of the month was inspired by several recent inquiries regarding the musical manuscripts of Obadiah the Proselyte. The staff of the Jewish Music Research Centre hopes that the information provided in the introduction, the accompanying recordings, and the bibliography will provide a general picture regarding this interesting set of early Hebrew musical manuscripts.

Three Synagogue Chants of the Twelfth Century

This collection includes arrangements for voice (with piano or organ accompaniment) of the three chants that were discovered on two manuscripts originating from the Cairo Geniza: 1. "Mi’al har Horev" 2. "Wa-Eda’ mah" and 3. "Baruk’ Hag-Gever." The hymn texts are included in Hebrew (romanized) and are also printed separately in Hebrew, English, French, and German.
