Enjoy the beautiful vocals of Soprano Lauren Pomerantz singing in Early Spanish accompanied by masterful dulcimer, recorders, and percussion. Recorded with superb live acoustics, this CD of joyful, sensuous, deep songs of love and longing celebrates the richness of life in the Multi-Cultural Golden Age of Spain as experienced by the Sephardim (Jews of Medieval Spain). Ms. Pomerantz is a well known performer of Early Music and has been featured in European musical tours, and on Spanish and American PBS. "The songs are exquisitely crafted, wonderfully exotic in their melodic contours, and vocal ornaments, and richly emotional.....an unusual and extraordinarily appealing record." The Washington Post "Listeners no doubt will derive much pleasure from these hauntingly beautiful 'jewels'." Roanoke College "Lauren's Kate Bush-like voice takes us back to the pleasures and sorrows of medieval Spain with songs of births, deaths, weddings, betrayals, longing and love, in a voice that evokes a world long lost -- an oral storytelling tradition that she has helped to keep alive 500 years after it was destroyed in Spain." Shambhala Books, Berkeley, CA "Jewels of the Sephardim contains fascinating selections sung and arranged by a jewel of a singer Lauren Pomerantz. Her voice is crystal clear, almost shiny, well-trained and a joy to listen to. There is much variety among the songs and Ms. Pomerantz conjures up a distinct character for each one. This is an enchanting CD." Washington Jewish Week.
