Oud Prayers on the Road to St. Jacques
Sacred music of the Abrahamic faiths
Oud solo performances and arrangements by Yuval Ron

International composer, producer and world music artist Yuval Ron
takes on a highly symbolic endeavor, to unite chants from the three
religious traditions of the Middle East into a handful of harmonic
musical medleys. His deeply moving weaving of ancient sacred music
from the Hebrew, Maronite, Armenian and Sufi traditions results in a
decidedly contemplative, meditative and introspective experience.
Upon hearing a performance on the Oud by Yuval Ron, Pir Zia Inayat-
Khan, head of the Sufi Order International, remarked: “While deep
practice of one’s religious tradition is like sounding a note, a note
of great integrity and beauty, bringing together many sacred
traditions through the harmony of music expands the notes into a
symphony!” Recorded in live recitals on April 18, 2007 at Chapelle de
Cgan (built 12th Century) in Arthez and on April 19, 2007 at Notre
Dame a Sarrance (built 14th century) in Sarrance. Both chapels are on
the historic pilgrimage road “Route de St. Jacques de
Compostelle” (“Camino de Santiago de Compostela”) in Basque region,
