Welcoming Shabbat with a Six-Part Harmony Version of Yedid Nefesh


We have posted many versions of Yedid Nefesh, one of the prayers in the Kabbalat Shabbat service on Friday night, but this one is very unusual. It's a cappella in six-part harmony recorded by a singer who doesn't identify himself in the YouTube video that he posted.

The only identification on the video is that it's a "That Was Fred" production. If the singer lets us know his name and gives us some of the backstory about his recording technique, we'll be glad to share the information and some of his other songs with you. 

The singer does say that he recorded and filmed himself singing his original arrangement of this wonderful Kabbalat Shabbat song and gives credit to all his Hebrew day school and summer experiences at Camp Ramah in the Poconos for making him love it so much. 

Enjoy and Shabbat Shalom!
