I look forward to hearing the (original?) Regesh version. Robert, do you
mean that "Shabbes" is available as a CD, but that this version may be
available in some compilation in the future?

notes making for a more "popular" but less exciting rendition. (Simply
reading Sam's vocables gives me more of a feeling of the energy of the

even when made by the same musical forces as in this case (male a capella
Maybe list members have favorite examples of dramatically different
