After years of study of music, the Bible and the Hebrew language,
musician, translator and artist Aryeh Naftaly
has arrived at some startling discoveries:
The Song of Songs is an autobiographical opera
in which Solomon - Messiah King, son of David - confesses
how he threw away true love and with it his chance
to bring about the Messianic Era.
Furthermore, Aryeh has discovered the key to performing
this 3,000-year-old masterpiece with the original music.
Now available as a CD/art-book package,
The Song of Songs - Words and Music: King Solomon
is a recording of the original text and music of The Song of Songs
performed by an ensemble of some of Israel's finest singers and musicians
accompanied by a 24 x 24 cm art-book
featuring an innovative parallel Hebrew-English translation
and dramatic arrangement of the text with 60 original papercut illuminations
by Aryeh Naftaly (see and hear examples below - click on pictures to enlarge,
