Ovadia HaGer

Mi-al har horev from the 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.
