Syrian Song of Songs and Kabbalat Shabbat (Audio)

This post includes two audio recordings representing the Syrian custom and musical style, sung by Hazzan Faraj Samra. The first clip is a 20 minute long audio recording of the Song of Songs, traditionally recited in its entirety prior to Kabbalat Shabbat in many Sephardic congregations. The second clip is a 15 minute long audio recording of sections of the Kabbalat Shabbat service. These resources are both from the Sephardic Hazzanut Project, a project of Syrian-born Faraj Samra, Hazzan at the Syrian Midkash Eliyahu Synagogue in Brooklyn, NY.
