The Psalms of Ali Ufki, now on CD

Noam Sender, who I know from his impeccable taste in concerts to sponsor, and from his inspired drumming during services at Congregation Beth Zion, writes:

Dear friends:

I am pleased to announce the release of our CD titled “The Psalms of Ali Ufki”.

This Dunya release presents an interfaith concert of sacred music exploring the shared traditions of Judaism, Turkish Sufism, Greek Orthodoxy and Protestant Christianity. It includes 17th c. psalm settings in French and Latin, Hassidic nigguns, Turkish Maftirim songs in Hebrew, Greek Orthodox hymns, Turkish Sufi songs and instrumental music. The concert was recorded live at the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University on April 2005.

You can now purchase the CD on line by visiting our store at www.dunyainc.org (click Dunya store on left). Feel free to browse the site for past or upcoming events. Your interest and support are very much appreciated.
