Morenika/Sheharhoret w/Kedusha - Raml Maya - מורניקה\שחרחורת עם קדושה רמל מאיא



This Kedusha will give you goosebumps. I usually save it for special occasions since it's a favorite among the Kahal. Can be used whenever or wherever, but like I said, it's so beautiful, you're going to want to save it for unique moments, especially a Shabbat Hatan or wedding.
The tune is in Raml Maya - the main maqam for Parashat Lech Lecha.

  1. Sorry, is Raml Maya the name of the maqam? In classic Arabic, Raml is Sand and Maya like in Aramit is water. Must be a Maqam of the Maghreb, no?

    1. Yes. It's the name of the Maqam. Thanks for the translation. I didn't know that.

Selihot Lema'ancha Elohai - סליחות למענך אלהי

This song is recited every morning during Selihot, in addition to Shaharit of Yom Kippur. The tune is practically the same among all Sepharadim.

Ki Eshmera Shabbat (Rasd Dil) w/Shavat Aniyim - כי אשמרה שבת (רצד דיל) עם ראו בנים

Parashat Vayehi marks the end of the Book of Bereshit. The poets of Morocco used this opportunity to create some of the nicest tunes our Bakashot has to offer. The hymns associated with Vayehi are well known even to the beginner. Their sweet melodies are used time and time again throughout the year because they are easy to learn and fit well with the Tefila. This tune of Ki Eshmera Shabbat was taken from the original song Tuvu Lilah Ya Nas which I've included in a picture below. In this recording I sing the piyut and adapt it to Shavat Aniyim. It fits well with: Lecha Dodi El Adon Adon Olam Yidgal La'el Baruch Rau Banim....or any other quatrain song. The maqam of this song as well as with most piyutim from Bakashot Parashat Vayehi is Rasd Dil.

Lechu Neranena - לכו נרננה

Immediately following Shir Hashirim ( HERE ), the custom of many Jews around the world is to sing Tehilim chapters 95-100, collectively known as Lechu Neranena. Each psalm corresponds to one day of the week and then we directly proceed to sing "Mizmor LeDavid" corresponding to Shabbat. Ashkenazim recite the psalms to themselves, while Moroccans sing it to this traditional melody of Tehilim.
