old testament in audio

i'm looking for fragments of old testament in audio but in hebrew version - exactly "the song of songs which is Solomon's" and "psalm 87" (about Zion).

i found these fragments on http://www.audioscriptures.org/audio/0123/OT/OT.htm and i think "the song of Solomon" is great in singing version (not reading). in my opinion psalms which are songs are the best for learning hebrew. but psalm 87 is only in reading version. could you help me to find this psalm as song :-)?

Re: old testament in audio

I know you can find Torah portions online in audio, done by cantors. Maybe the Song of Songs is on there, too, as it is read once a year in synagogue--I think during Sukkot.

There was a website maybe five years ago by a lady who said she had figured out the original meaning of the poetic cantillation marks, and the melody they represented. She had some audio samples out of SOS. Lately I have tried searching for it, but the site is gone.

PS it is really great that you want to memorize those two portions of Scripture.

Hey, I am reading through the Bible in a year and today I am on Ps 87. Isn't it a wonderful song of worship?

If you are familiar with worship music, do you know the song, "Who is this?" ?

Who is this/that appears/like the dawn
Fairer than the moon/brighter than the sun/you're the lover of my soul
Draw me near to you/draw me near to you

We will run/we will fly/we will be together...
Draw me near to you...

Did you notice that in Ca 6.10 the speaker is the Bridegroom? Wow, man. That really impacted me when I realized about His love.

Re: old testament in audio

1. http://www.hebrewworld.com/SpeakingBible.html This is by Shlomo Bertonov and distributed by THE CENTRAL LIBRARY for the BLIND
VISUALLY IMPAIRED and HANDICAPPE in Israel (http://www.clfb.org.il/index-e.htm). He pronounces according to nusach Sefardi, which means he pronounces the Het and Ayin. The Qof, Tet, and Sadi are still according to modern Israeli (not according to old Hebrew like you'd get from a Temani speaker)

2. If you don't want to buy that, then you can listen to the Sefardi rabbi at Mechon Mamre (http://mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/ptmp3prq.htm), (http://mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt0.htm).

3. As for the woman that set sciptures to music according to a system she researched, the CD is "La Musique de la Bible révélée" by Suzanne Haik-Vantoura. Her book and CD are widely available.

Also look at the http://www.israel-music.com for the various Nusuchim (e.g. there is a good set of the Psalms (tehilim) acc. to the Moroccan tradition). Cf. http://www.hatikva.com, http://www.liturgica.com.

If you're looking to learn chanting yourself, look at http://www.renanot.co.il/ and http://www.darga.org.il/eng/index.asp (I've had a good buying experience with Darga).

On a personal note, the CD "Chorale Mystique" by Matthew Lazar has a magnificent rendering of Ps 133 in the Syriac tradition. If you find the CD under $
30, grab it.

Cheers
