Notes Like most other countries, the history of modern Israel is written in the songs of its people. Through years of travail and final independence, the modern Jew has developed a medium of expression without restraint, an expression of a fullness and richness attainable only in music. In these songs, Sidor Belarsky's performance describes a voyage from darkness to light, for which the Jews have long striven - an ideal we can all appreciate and understand.
