 Beautiful CD April 27, 2012 By Rachel V. See All My Reviews "This CD is well worth listening to if you like classical soprano plus contempory settings of Jewish melodies. Beautiful singing by Raya Gonen and sensitive accompaniment by Louis Menendez. Does anyone know where I could find the sheet music for this CD?" Report Abuse
