The CD includes musical exemples of prayers in Hebrew and folksongs in Juhuri (Judeo-Tat, the language of the Mountain Jews) from the vast ethnographic and ethnomusicological research on the Mountain Jews carried by the JMRC. Accompanied by a book with texts and transcriptions, catalogued separately.
