Taste of Eternity: A Musical Shabbat
Part I: Friday Night Service and Table Songs (Z’Mirot)

Leonard Nimoy, Guest Narrator
Sung by The Western Wind Vocal Ensemble and Guest Choir

Taste of Eternity presents some of the most profound and exalted music from the Friday evening synagogue service, followed by tuneful and spirited Shabbat table songs (Z’Mirot) which are sung at the festive Friday evening meal. The program includes ancient chants, classical choral settings, traditional folk songs, mysterious Chassidic melodies, and 20th century compositions, all sung by the six superb vocalists of The Western Wind together with a chamber choir and cantors Alberto Mizrahi, Robert Paul Abelson, and Benjie Elen Schiller. Matthew Lazar, the acclaimed authority on Jewish choral music, conducts.
