Notes The Seasons in Israel in Song

While the seasons of Israel are usually quite temperate, occasionally snow does appear. This Vistas of Israel program celebrates the seasons in song with 5 selections leading off with a song inspired by the snow:

1) An untitled song sung by an unnamed male group was apparently inspired by a snowfall on the city of Jerusalem. 1:24-3:21

2) An untitled song about the "rebirth" of the sun after the winter is sung by an unnamed male group.3:37-6:06

3) This song is inspired by the Bible's Song Of Songs and is about the Spring season of love and is sung by an unnamed mixed group. 6:16-8:27

4) The Wild Ducks is a group with a young black girl as the soloist singing in Hebrew about the Spring season. 8:42-11:48

5) The Summer brings athletes to Israel to compete in all manner of sporting events. This is an untitled song sung by an unnamed mixed group about these events of Summer. 12:00-13:46
