Az Yashir Moshe maqam Raml Maya - אז ישיר משה מקאם רמל מאיא
As mentioned in previous posts of Az Yashir Moshe, hazanim often sing the shira to different maqamim weekly. Recorded here is the shira to the maqam of Raml Maya. The first third is recorded to the tune of Dodi Yarad Legano of Parashat Bereshit/Lech Lecha. The second third (nashafta) is the tune of Bene Elyon and the final third is a faster melody in the maqam. For Az Nivhalu I add an additional tune that can be sung but it's not necessary.
Type "Az Yashir Moshe" in the search button above or check the index under "tefila" to see other tunes I've recorded.
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.
It's the climax of the entire Torah. The moment the world was created. The recital of the Ten Commandments in any synagogue is a special moment. In a Moroccan synagogue it's no different. More than that, the congregation has the custom to rise just as the hazan recites the holy words of the Aseret HaDibrot. For your listening pleasure, I have recorded the Ten Commandments in its entirety.
