Oare cum se interpretau psalmii, textele biblice? Aşa? Oare de ce sînt un pic sceptic?
Iată opera de o viaţă a Suzzanei Haik Vantoura, încercarea de a recupera muzica evreiască din urmă cu 3000 de ani.
This is Suzanne Haïk-Vantoura’s restitution of the Priestly or Aaronic Blessing (Numbers 6:22-27), as performed by the San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble aka SAVAE (http://www.savae.org) on their CD, ANCIENT ECHOES. This video includes both tracks (the original and the reprise) as performed by SAVAE.
This slideshow includes the consonantal Hebrew Masoretic Text and modified versions of the transliteration and translation provided by Lev Software. The vocal and instrumental arrangements and harmonies are SAVAE’s, but the ancient melodic line and modality were inferred by SHV from the Masoretic Text (Letteris Edition).
Here the melodic ornaments are slightly altered by SAVAE on two or three words, to reflect (so they tell me) what the Babylonian Talmud tells us about certain virtuoso vocal techniques that were creeping into late Second Temple practice.
This slideshow of Psalms 24 includes the consonantal Hebrew Masoretic Text and modified versions of the transliteration and translation provided by Lev Software. The arrangement for modern instruments and the vocal harmonies are of course SHV’s, but the ancient melodic line, modality and choral alternation were inferred by her from the Masoretic Text (Letteris Edition).
This Psalm is one of the most grandiose in the Psalter, beginning in „harmonic minor” and then augmenting the 4th degree of the mode until the last two clauses (during which the 4th degree becomes natural again). Here the arrangement is taken from SHV’s original 1976 recording (now out of print). SHOFAR’s demo recording is in some ways even more intense.
