Yigdal (mzmoum) - יגדל (מזמום)



This Yigdal in maqam mzmoum I heard from Rabbi Eliyahou Elbaz from France, one of the great hazanim of our generation. Although I never met him personally, I confirmed with one of his students (which I met recently) that indeed he sings this a lot. The tune comes from one of the songs of Sami El Maghribi z''l. (if you are aware of the exact name of the song, please send me a note in the comment box. I'd love to know)
Towards the end, I switch the tune to "Meshe Yah Asur" - part of the Koudam el Jdid compilation which is also in maqam mzmoum. I hope to record the entire Koudam el Jdid in the near future.
