From Cantor Natalie Young

Cantor Natalie shares a song she wrote dedicated to the members of BE Sisters:

 

Cantor Young shares Niggun Labania by Alma.

When have you experienced a piece of music as a true expression of where you were in a particular moment?

It can be challenging in today’s world to focus inward and be present in the moment. Music can be used as a spiritual practice, helping one to connect to the breath and the Divine flow that sustains us. Through rhythm, dynamics, melody and phrase, we are invited in to connect to the deepest parts of ourselves with music as the gateway to the soul. Niggunim (wordless melodies) in particular, allow us to bring personal connection and intention to where we are in the moment, without text defining that space.

 

Cantor Young shares this original melody written during her first year of Cantorial school in Jerusalem, which is now being used by communities around the world:

Niggun Esoud

The Joys of Music

Music is the language of the soul and can help bring us back to the storehouse of sacred memory. As a child, my father used to sing me this beautiful Yiddish lullaby, Rozhinkes Mit Mandlen. It was one of my favorites. When I became a mother, I sang to my own children those sweet songs I heard as a child. Music has been a connective thread through the generations of my family. What is a song rooted in memory that brings you back to a moment of great joy or peace?
