Zemel Choir in Uri tsafon, yehezkiel braun

The Zemel Choir acknowledges the passing of Yehezkiel Braun in Israel in August 2014, at the age of 92.   Over the years, the Choir has performed and recorded a lot of Braun’s music (including the world premiere of his Leyl No’amon for soprano, chorus and orchestra at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall in 1985).  This recording of Uri Tzafon, one of his many miniatures for a cappella choir, is our small tribute to a good friend and a giant of Israeli and Jewish music.
