I am interested in chironomy, the system of hand movements that accompanied
trop. I have read the article in Encyclopedia Judaica (was it under
"Masoretes" perhaps) that has 3 intriguing diagrams showing hand signals.
It cited a French encyclopedia of sacred music, which I was able to get,
but it had no more pictures than the ones in EJ.
I am primarily interested in pictures, like "how to", but also interested
in the history of the development of chironomy.
I have made my own informal system of hand and body movements that I use
when teaching Torah trop (to make a multi-sensory experience), but I'd like
to know if there is a more official way to do it.
Can anyone suggest sources?
Thanks for your reply. A sweet year to all.
