Pesah 1 - Hagada shel Pesah complete - פסח 1 - הגדה של פסח שלם
Despite the trials and stress leading up to the holiday, there's almost no better feeling when you sit around the table with you family celebrating the Pesah Seder. The Moroccan tradition of singing "Bivhilu" and the other glorious songs, make our feast one of the best in the world. Here is the most of the Hagada recorded for you to learn at your convenience. I omitted any section that had to do with Shabbat, so please take note. The songs found in the section of Nirtza and Shir Hashirim are also omitted.
This recording is Le'iluy Nishmat my brother in law, Yosef Amram ben Avraham Shelomo, whose nahala is today, 2 Nissan.
First time I heard this song, I fell in love with. It's beautiful and melodious. And believe it or not, it's not a Moroccan song. It's origin is from Yerushalayim (or Egyptian) and can be adapted to many parts of the Tefila.
Of all my years recording piyutim and tefilot, the one recording that I get most comments about is the one of Megilat Esther. I have met people from around the globe who have told me that they learned the Megila from my recording. It makes me proud of what I do and gives me the strength to keep on doing it. Thank you everyone for your support!
Here is the entire Megila read with Moroccan Ta'amim.
Growing up, I would cherish the opportunity every Shabbat to recite this traditional, slow-paced melody to Tehilim. Originating in the Spanish cities of Morocco such as Tangiers and Tetouan, IMHO, I believe there is no sweeter version in the world. Think you've heard better? Feel free to send me an email with a recording. I'll be waiting.
Here is Chapter 1 for your listening pleasure. Our first installment of Tehilim Tuesday.
