Notes and Editorial Reviews

WORLD PREMIERE RECORDINGS
AHAVA—Brotherhood is a captivating symphonic setting of dramatic readings that include the biblical prophets, medieval Spanish-Hebrew poets, Benjamin Franklin, and George Washington! Commemorating three centuries of Jewish life in America, AHAVA culminates in a universal appeal for "goodness, benevolence, and compassion" to be shared by people of all faiths, races, and nationalities. Also included on this CD are Jewish prayer settings by mid-20th-century American masters, all recorded for the first time.
