Notes This album combines the spoken word, instrumental music and the beautiful tenor singing voice of Cantor Meir Finkelstein to create a deeply moving tribute to the city of Jerusalem. The spoken introductions (in English) to the musical selections give a Biblical context for understanding the great emotional ties that Jews feels towards the city.
