Psalms 104 Sung in Ancient Hebrew

Psalm 104 is a beautiful song, a hymn that praises God as the great Creator. The psalm invites the worshiper to praise and worship the Creator:

Bless the LORD, O my soul; O LORD, my God, You are very great; You are clothed in glory and majesty,

wrapped in a robe of light; You spread the heavens like a tent cloth.

He sets the rafters of His lofts in the waters, makes the clouds His chariot, moves on the wings of the wind.

He makes the winds His messengers, fiery flames His servants.

The Yamma Ensemble, one of Israel’s leading music ensembles, has created a video in which they sing Psalms 104 in ancient Hebrew.

Yamma Ensemble’s web page describes the work of the group:

Ensemble Yamma, Israel’s leading delicate world music ensemble presents original contemporary Hebrew music.

The group members stay true to the character of the Middle East, the region where they were born and raised. The soulful, exotic music is accompanied by ancient musical instruments (kopuz, duduk, hand drums), which are typical of the Middle East.

In addition to this unique art, Yamma also performs the traditional music and material of the various Jewish diasporas. Songs of the Jewish communities from Yemen, Babylon, and Sepharad, as well as Hasidic music, with the fascinating forms and rhythms that have been preserved by generations of Jewish traditions.
