Notes In the Sabbath morning prayers there is a psalm that begins, “It is good to give thanks unto the Lord, to praise Thy name in song.” To Shimon, this recording represents a fulfillment of the promise of these lines… a giving of thanks, in song, through the words of the Psalms.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
