Good Tidings: Isaac Levy’s new Ladino CD.
We finally have the opportunity to hear Isaac Levy’s exciting voice in a special CD:
“Romances (ballads) and popular Sephardic Folk Songs in the original Ladino language, together with “Romances sung in their Hebrew translation as well as a few Liturgical Hymns sung in the synagogue, and finally nursery rhymes that he himself composed.
Isaac Levy was a Jerusalemite. He dedicated his whole life to the perpetuation of the Judeo-Spanish patrimony, which he absorbed in the synagogue and inherited from his mother. His 10 volumes of Liturgical Hymns and 4 Volumes of Romances (Ballads) were the result of this inheritance.
He devoted his life’s work to this unique cultural enterprise, which was deeply influential and multi-dimensional. Isaac Levy drew, revealed and composed in letters and notes, and sometimes even sung himself the beauty concealed in the songs and prayers of the Sephardic Jews.
He spread a wide canvas before our eyes: Thessalonica and Tangier, Amsterdam and Sarajevo, Izmir and Sofia, Casablanca and naturally Jerusalem.
One had to have seen Isaac Levy engaged in his craft in order to understand the significance of the expression “dedicated his whole life to a supreme goal” Isaac Levy alone accomplished a task, which in other countries is fulfilled by entire institutes and institutions. He was invincible in his field. His voice was extraordinary and heart-stirring, but due to the high expectations he had of himself he never allowed himself to sing in public.
This CD will be a source of pleasure to listeners but also an appropriate homage to a very special person.
Itzhak Navon,
Chairman, The National Authority for Ladino Culture
