CPL minidocs / 2017 / 4 minutes
In The Song of the Sea, musician and author Enrico Fink guides us through the Great Synagogue of Florence while mapping out the history and repertoire of the Sephardic liturgy in Italy. Using the poem Shirat Hayam (Song of the Sea) as an example, Fink reflects on the importance of religious music throughout the Sephardic world. Performances by Rav Alberto Funaro and David Meghnagi demonstrate how the same ancient verses assume different melodies in each distinct community along the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea.
