Jeremiah Lockwood: Kol Nidre
An iconoclastic take on the Jewish liturgical tradition that draws on a wealth of inspirations from international folk musics.
The famous Kol Nidre melody is sung on the eve of Yom Kippur and is considered one of the oldest in the cantorial music canon, dating to the Middle Ages. Jeremiah Lockwood draws from the arcane and the earthy, the folkloric and the modernist, to make something that holds true to the beautiful shape-shifting of the cantorial music tradition.
