Chanting the Hebrew Bible: The Art of Cantillation
Chanting the Hebrew Bible provides a fine history of the tradition and offers a comprehensive explanation of the practice, an explanation of regional variations and grammatical rules, and shows how chanting dramatizes and interprets the meaning within the biblical text. In addition, Jacobson shares his unique system of notation and supplies extensive examples of musical notation. Errata Producing a book as expansive and detailed as Chanting the Hebrew Bible was a big undertaking, and author Joshua Jacobson and JPS are very proud of this remarkable book. We feel sure that it will be the most important reference in its field for years to come.
