With the long awaited publication of Mishkan T'filah, the celebrated new Siddur from CCAR (Central Conference of American Rabbis) Press
and the successor to Gates of Prayer,
the evolution of Reform Jewish worship took a pronounced leap and the mission of the Shabbat Anthology series took on a new importance.
The spectrum of musical style in prayer today continues to widen, perhaps more rapidly than ever before, and the new texts, prayers, and poetry of
Mishkan T'filah seem to have inspired an upsurge in artistic inspiration and creative talent. Centuries-old traditional texts have been given new life
by skilled arrangers, well-known and beloved songwriters have brought forth new selections, and talented new composers, many relatively undiscovered or even unpublished,
have debuted their works. The 30 wonderful pieces included in Shabbat Anthology Volume IV reflect the beauty and innovation of the Reform movement's new prayerbook.
This 90-page songbook, accompanied by a CD with 29 lovely recordings, features music by such esteemed contemporary composers as Richard Botton, Susan Colin, Erik Contzius,
Andrea Jill Higgins, Michael Isaacson, Lisa Levine, Danny Maseng, Jon Nelson, Josh Nelson, Rachelle Nelson, Rebecca Schwartz, Bonia Shur, Craig Taubman, and many more.
Also included are new arrangements of the classic folk melody "Ki Eshm'ra Shabbat" and Louis Lewandowski's Friday Night Kiddush.
This stunning collection of Shabbat music will bring new energy and vitality to your Shabbat worship!
