Notes and Editorial Reviews

Julien Jalaleddin Weiss lives in a 14th c. Mamluk palace topped with resounding domes, in the heart of the old part of Aleppo, in northern Syria. He chose this country so as to live in a world teem ing with symbols, where he could contemplate the Divine Being through music. After the Music Room and the Whirling Dervishes of Damascus, he calls upon the timeless art of the qasida to evoke the Levant of the Crusades through the emblematicfigure of Prince Usama.
