T'home el t'home (Psalm 42:8)
T’home-el-t’home Psalm 42: 8 --- Deep cries out to deep, the sounds of the opened slices of heaven’ all Your breakers and Your billows have swept over me. ---- T’home el t’home, ko-ray l’kol, tsee-no-re-hkha } X2 -- Kol-mish-ba-re-kha, v’ga-le-kha, v’ga-le-kha a-lai, A-lai a-vah-ru -- T’home el t’home … The timing of this performance at a festival taking place the week before Rosh HaShanah, the Jewish New Year, inspired me to bring Greg Salts on the stage to include the powerful awakening sound of the shofar. I felt the addition of the shofar was particularly relevant to these verses of this psalm.
