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.

Bakashot Lech Lecha Yotzer Miyado - בקשות לך לך יוצר מידו


Who knew that the famous song of Yotzer Miyado has its origins in our Bakashot.
I record it in two tunes. The first tune is the traditional bakashot tune. Half way down I switch the tune to the more popular version that is sung by many Sepharadim today.
It can be used to sing Shavat Aniyim, Rau Banim, El Adon and other quatrain songs.
