El Adon Ashkenazi Melody - אל אדון נועם אשכנז

 This tune for El Adon comes from the famous Ashkenazi song "The little bird is calling" and has been adapted dozens of times to other songs. In fact, I'm not so sure that's the original song of the tune. But it is gorgeous and very well loved by the congregants and listeners.

In case you are looking to match it with another song, the maqam is SAHLI.

Mizmor LeDavid Adonai Ro'i - מזמור לדוד ה' רועי

 This mizmor is said after the Beracha Me'en Sheva on Friday night. I am posting two recordings of this mizmor. 

The first is the traditional Spanish Moroccan Tehilim melody. We usually sing this generally when there is no special occasion. 



The second melody I reserve for either Rosh Hodesh or a special Shabbat.

Avarech et Shem - אברך את שם

I traditionally open up Havdala with this piyut. I love it and my kids sing it along with me. Some have the custom of switching up each paragraph with a different mix of songs, but in this recording, I have sung the same tune throughout.

Enjoy!



Elohim Hai Nora Ata - אלהים חי נורא אתה

 This piyut is sang for the Hatan ha-Bar Mitzvah when he gets an Aliya to the Torah. I've recorded it according to the French Moroccan tradition (with kedusha) and the Spanish Moroccan Tradition with a change in melody.

Either tune can be adapted to: Kadish, Kedusha, HaShem Melech.

Note: The French Moroccan tune is from Bakashot Zachor - Piyut Ashir Bizmirot which can be found HERE

Enjoy
