Hebrew Psalmody: a Structural Investigation

The tradition of singing the Psalms according to a specific set of masoretic accents (ta'ame emet) had been considered nearly forgotten. However, on the basis of the oral renditions of Psalms performed by North African and Middle Eastern Jews in liturgical and non-liturgical contexts that have survived until the present, this monograph maintains that many aspects of the system of cantillation according to masoretic accents was kept alive in actual practice.
