I'm glad Joel got off a letter in response to this absurd review, and am
only sorry I just didn't get a chance--I'm usually a week or two, or three
or ... behind on these threads--to add: 1) that Ladino folk melodies were,
of course, so far as I know, the special province of women--though Aaron
Howard includes them on a list of genres on the record that, by implication,
would not traditionally be sung by women in Judaism; and 2) Howard even
gives an incorrect citation for the Jeremiah verse which he then
(ludicrously) misquotes--It's 31:19, not 31:20, of Jeremiah. Good grief! --
