Notes Yohanan Boehm, one of the foremost music critics in Israel, described Cantor Siegel in the Jerusalem Post as a singer who "demonstrated a standard and a cultural approach from which our cantors can learn a great deal." This album showcases this lofty standard in a collection of songs about Israel: Hanegev, Shir Haroeh, Begalil, Eil Ivne Hagalil, Shir Haemek and more.
