Early Friday Playlist (#11): Passover Hallel Edition

Posted a day and a half early so that any Shomerei Mitzvot people who might be interested can listen before Shabbat/Yom Tov.

The Hallel is a group of prayers chanted by Jews on every Passover (albeit in truncated form on the last two days) and a number of other holidays. It is in fact familiar to all Christians as well - as the prayers are simply Psalms 113-118. So here are the Hallel prayers and some of their Christian equivalents.

Patrick Doyle: Non Nobis Domine (Psalm 115: Lo Lanu Adon-i)

Cantor Berele Chagy - Birkat Hallel (each of the following cantors is doing a different selection and melody...if I went into the details of which part/melody each is based on, it would bore you to sleep.)

Bach: Tonus Peregrinus (Meinen Seel erhebt den Herren/Psalm 114: Betzeyt Yisrael)

Cantor Moshe Oysher: Hallel

Monteverdi: Laudate Dominum omnes gentes (Psalm 116: Ahavti, ki yishma Adon-i)

Cantor Mordechai Hershman: Birkas Hallel

Advanced Playlist:

Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn
