The Gerard Edery Ensemble
Sing To The Eternal
In collaboration with The Village Temple in New York City, The Gerard Edery Ensemble’s latest release is an offering of spiritual songs from Morocco, Persia, Turkey, Yugoslavia, Spain and Portugal as well as original songs composed by Gerard Edery and based on sacred texts. Sung in English, Hebrew, Ladino and Arabic. Includes Adon Olam, Eli Eliyahu, Ya Ribon, L’Cha Dodi, Los Bilbilicos, To Everything There is a Season, Mi Ze Yemalel and many more with full lyrics and translations.
The name of this CD, Sing to the Eternal, conveys the hope that it will be a pathway for all who wish to enter into a musical dialogue with our Creator, our People and with all of humanity. The original songs, arrangements and translations reflect our belief that we cannot create the definitive liturgical format and sound for our time, but need to be ever open to the musical traditions around us.
