Maria Krupoves and Gerard Edery present a beautiful and provocative fusion of music drawn from their respective roots in the Christian and Jewish traditions. By weaving together folk songs, chants, and prayers in some dozen languages from across centuries and across Europe and the Middle East, they show that the human need for a spiritual dimension defies all boundaries of time, place and language.
