A few years ago, Yossi Green, one of the pre-eminent composers of modern Jewish music, was present at a Cantorial Shabbat where the guest cantor and singer for the Shabbat was Avremi Roth.
Green was very surprised to identify his melodies combined with the Shabbat prayers, and connected to the unique way that Avremi presented them. He then decided to compose and create together with Avremi “Nussach Green” – a composition project that encompasses all the prayers and psalms of Shabbat.
The first album of the series is dedicated to Kabbalat Shabbat and Ma’ariv, in combination with the traditional and familiar nussach.
The official launch of the project took place for the first time on Shabbat Mevarchin Shvat – Parshat Va’era at the prestigious Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Jerusalem, featuring the “chefs” who worked on this special dish – Yossi Green the composer, Avremi Roth, Srulik Hershtik and the choir, and the musical producer of the project Yehuda Galili.
The elegant album, printed in a limited edition, is now available.
