*Transcending history, language, and society, the nigun – or wordless
Jewish melody – helps unify us in worship or around the Shabbat table.
Nigunim have long served to spark the spirit: 18th century Chasidim sang
nigunim to create a mood of holiness; in today’s liberal Jewish worship
service, the nigun helps shift focus to prayer from the concerns of the
outside world. Now, Transcontinental Music introduces the first
comprehensive anthology of inspiring nigun melodies, available in a
songbook with CD and on CD alone.
