A new album featuring some old words came out a week or two ago. It’s called “Shir HaShirim,” and it’s aptly name. The lyrics of the CD are the entirety of the biblical book of Shir HaShirim. The artists are Shemspeed favorites Diwon, Dugans, and Benyamin Brody.

Below, a few minutes of their arrangement of Shir HaShirim performed live.

It’s particularly apt for the CD to be released at this time of year. Although in the Sfardi tradition, Shir HaShirim is recited every Friday evening, in the Ashkenazi tradition, it is read aloud on the Shabat in the middle of Pesach. I will observe this tradition this year by popping this CD in.

Shabat Shalom. Amen. Selah.
