40 of 40 people found the following review helpful By The Five Sisters VINE VOICE on 27 Jan. 2006
Format: Audio CD
This CD contains a diverse selection of music performed by the Burning Bush - a six person band. The songs come from all over Europe with Ashkenazi (Eastern European) and Sephardi (Southern European and North African) influences both well represented. The Ashkenazi music is mainly Klezmer in style, but there are also some slower tunes including a lullaby from the ghettos. The Sephardi music includes some early medieval pieces. All the music is superbly performed with a selection of traditional as well as modern instruments. Vocals are provided by Lucy Skeaping (whom Radio 3 listeners may be familiar with as a presenter) who has a light and delicate touch.
Altogether a very satisfying (and often foot-tapping) listening experience. If you are interested in Jewish music, Klezmer, or world music I would highly recommend this CD.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This lovely disc of sympathetically recorded Jewish music of various kinds and of diverse provenance is played and sung with tact and brio by these British musicians.
Only occasionally, on early hearings, did I miss a certain tang of `old world` authenticity, but the more I listened and the more I let this captivating, emotive music seep into my soul, the less such quibbles concerned me.
The 67-minute disc comprises wild uptempo klezmer pieces, mystical Ashkenazi arrangements of Hassidim music, Yiddish songs from Central/Eastern Europe, Sephardic ballads of Judeo-Spanish origin, and devotional songs from the Middle East. It is, as they say, a heady cocktail. All through this delightful album one can hear the ebullience, joy, longing, tears, humour, gravitas, devotion, high spirits, hope and despair that is the Jewish experience. I`ve found that the more I play it, the more it is like welcoming a mercurial old friend back into the house.
Lucie Skeaping sings and plays violin and rebec, while her husband Roddy plays various instruments as well as arranging the pieces. They have surrounded themselves
with a group of like-minded musicians of fine pedigree who play oud, mandolin, clarinet, cymbalom and several other instruments with scintillating virtuosity.
It would be foolish, not to mention pointless, to single out `highlights` from such a fulsome, varied set of songs and melodies, but there are slow, ardent songs which
Lucie Skeaping sings with exactly the right amount of restrained fervour, and rollicking, good-humoured dance tunes that make at least one listener feel like jumping up and flicking a leg and flinging an arm. Then there are more obviously devout pieces that are affecting and contemplative.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Kate Hopkins TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 7 Feb. 2012
Format: Audio CD
A beautiful selection of Jewish music, including klezmer, Sephardic romances and ballads and some of the haunting songs from the ghettos and camps of World War II. The instrumentalists on the disc are quite superb, and though Lucie Skeaping's voice may not quite have the sweet tone of Montserrat Figueras (for Jordi Savall on his discs of Sephardi music) or the power of Yasmin Levy, she gets some very fine effects out of it. Sorrow, passion, humour - it's all here. A terrific introduction to the rich and varied world of Jewish music.
