What people are saying about Listen!

"Witty, deep, tuneful--music for our moment and for the long haul." Bill McKibben

If modern America held public square readings of Torah the way that prophets preached to our ancestors, this is what it would sound like. The English makes it accessible, the quality of the musicianship compels attention, and the messages are as timeless and relevant as the texts on which the songs are based. !שמע - Listen! is a welcome expression of Jewish spirit for a contemporary world. 
Faith Rogow 

...extraordinary chant and music by Cantor Abbe Lyons and Will Fudeman...enormously enrich the text.”
Rabbi Arthur Waskow
