Though written with obvious pride in his faith, the issues Jonathon Wittenberg addresses affect us all. The result is a poetic, often moving, but above all profound work. This book is a guide to the way people can find meaning and purpose in a life seeking to reconcile the spiritual, the practical and the downright miserable within a tradition which has had a huge impact on Western intellectual thought.

This is a translation by Dennis Weber, edited by John Wheeler and jointly published with King David's Harp, in which a noted French musicologist argues that the accentual system preserved in the Masoretic Text was originally a method of recording hand signals (chironomy) by which temple musicians were directed in the performance of music. She explains her reconstruction of these notations which has allowed her to perform haunting and beautiful music around the worlds using only the Hebrew text as a score.
