Ancient Babylonian Jewish Wedding Music

Story

Track 10, the ancient Babylonian Jewish Wedding Song "Ashir Shirim", from my album, "The Ancient Biblical Lyre".

This traditional ancient melody is arranged here, on an evocation of the ancient Biblical "Nevel" Lyre  - one of  the lyres once played by the Levites in the Temple of Jerusalem to accompany the singing of the Levitical Choir...

 The translation of the song is:

 "I will sing songs to God at the coming of the redeemer.This terrified,innocent & fair daughter - hurry to redeem her now.Elijah will come & she will be redeemed"

The traditional music of the Babylonian Jews is unique, as it may well be the "Invisible Baggage" of the Jews who were sent into exile there, after the destruction of the First Temple of Jerusalem by King Nebuchadrezzar II, in 586 BCE!

These melodies therefore, may just possibly be representative of the very earliest aural memory of Jewish music, ever - from the almost Legendary Era of the Ark of the Covenant & King Solomon's Temple...
