Rosh Hashana Musaf Hazara Amida - ראש השנה חזרת עמידה מוסף

Image
Arguably the most important and definitely the longest amida of the year, Musaf of Rosh Hashana takes the cake. So powerful; so vital! Here it is according to the Moroccan tradition.

Rosh Hashana 1st night - ליל ראשון של ראש השנה

Below you will find the recording of the opening piyut called Ahot Ketana. Throughout most of Morocco the tune was the same though with some nuances that are different. Notice how sometimes I will stay high and other times I will go. The Spanish Moroccans had the custom to sing it high all the times while the rest of Morocco went low and then went high right at the end.

For Kadish, this is where the Spanish Moroccans take control. They have a gorgeous tune beginning with the last stanza hizku ve'gilu and continue it into kadish. The French Moroccan hazan will just repeat hizku ve'gilu in the same tune as Ahot Ketana and continue the kadish that way. In my synagogue I open with the Spanish Moroccan way and then the second half of Kadish I switch to the traditional tune of Ahot Ketana.

Recorded here is the entire Amida, start to finish for Shaharit both days of Rosh Hashana.
One could use the beginning of this recording to begin and end all the Amida prayers during the high holidays while simply substituting the middle blessings .
