Jewish music has found its way into the repertory of many orchestras and choirs around the world.
Not just the obvious favorites like Hava Nagila and Hevenu Shalom Aleichem, but also melodies that we thought were limited to venues where Jewish religious services were being conducted.
You may have noticed that our blog posts on Fridays have been leaning toward Shabbat melodies that we select for their unusual musical treatment or their unusual location. Today as we prepare for Shabbat we're sharing a beautiful rendition of Shalom Aleichem, the traditional melody to welcome Shabbat, performed by the choir of the University of Lisbon, Portugal.
Enjoy and Shabbat shalom!
