Chanukkah

Maoz Tzur: The Mystifying Wandering of a Hanukkah Anthem

This Song of the Month for Hanukkah, in video lecture format, reveals the fascinating story of the well-known Maoz Tsur. This lecture, originally presented by Prof. Edwin Seroussi on December 13, 2020 as part of a American Friends of the Hebrew University program, examines (with audio examples) dozens of versions of the holiday classic drawn from different communities and eras. Not only a fascinating lecture, here Prof. Seroussi offers a master class on contemporary Jewish music scholarship and methodology.   

Cancionero Sefardí de Turquía (SMR Bresler Collection)

Yo le mandi a mi novio
Cuatro muchachicas
De día en día
Ya viene la tasa
Un dicho me tienes dicho
Las de la novia
Y mires mi hija
Los caminos de Serkiği
Una tadre de enverano
Esto quien lo culpa
Oh, qué hermosa hija
Al kahl me entrí
Si queres saber
Más ariba y más ariba
Así bivas el soldado
De las altas mares
Q'amanezca, q'amanezca
