Adon Olam

The tapestry created by weaving music and poetry together can be stunning. Let me give you an example. You can listen to Fortuna’s mesmerizing rendition of Adon Olam, a beautiful hymn in the Jewish Liturgy, here. This song is on the album Cantigas. If you do a Google search, you can find other sites to listen to the song for free before you decide if you want to purchase/download the music.

Here (reproduced from Wikipedia) are the lyrics in Hebrew, Transliteration, and English.

Adon Olam lyrics

Fortuna’s interpretation of the hymn is not a new release (actually, it was released in 1994) but I first heard of the song today via Twitter (@gideony).
