Song of Songs

 
The guns having fallen silent (at least for the time being), the Muses can once more raise their voices. Last month (how long ago it now seems), I promised to post the video clip of the general rehearsal for the Bach and Mendelssohn concert we gave at the beginning of December. Unfortunately, the editing is proving somewhat more difficult than I had expected. Until I can overcome the problems, here is a little something I posted on YouTube this evening – the Jerusalem Oratorio Chamber Choir performing a lovely pastoral piece by Yechezkel Braun, to words from "The Song of Songs":  Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south wind; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow forth. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.
 
                              
 
I haven’t given up on the Mendelssohn either, and will post it just as soon as I can. Meanwhile, enjoy…

About Shimona from the Palace

Born in London, the UK, I came on Aliyah in my teens and now live in Jerusalem, where I practice law. I am a firm believer in the words of Albert Schweitzer: "There are two means of refuge from the sorrows of this world - Music and Cats." To that, you can add Literature. To curl up on the sofa with a good book, a cat at one's feet and another one on one's lap, with a classical symphony or concerto in the background - what more can a person ask for?
