Book DescriptionFrom ancient biblical music to the modern Israeli pop scene, Discovering Jewish Music charts the evolution of Jewish music through the ages. Edelman begins 3,000 years ago, with a discussion of music in the Bible, and moves on to examinethe nature of folk songs and liturgy hymns from the Diaspora, then takes us up to the 20th century, highlighting Jewish music in North America and Israel, including the general popularity of many of today?s Bar Mitzvah favorites, like "Hava Nagila." The author explains musical terms in a way that is understandable to those unfamiliar with the terminology; at the same time, students of music will appreciate the book?s juxtaposition of the many aspects of Jewish life and practice that come together to provide a stage for Jewish music. With an accompanying CD and over 150 musical illustrations in the book, this multimedia package is a treasure for anyone interested in Jewish culture, history, philosophy, and music.
