Day of Rest
Rahel Jaskow's CD, 'Day of Rest,' consists mostly of songs for the Jewish Sabbath. Expertly recorded and mixed by fellow CD Baby artist Ray Scudero of Argaman Studios in Israel, Rahel's disc pioneers a new genre in Jewish music. Rahel has recorded nearly every song in multiple voices, without musical accompaniment, to give the effect of a small a-cappella choir. Rahel's clear, bell-like voice and harmonious vocal arrangements guide the listener to a quiet, tranquil place and make the spirit soar. Although the songs are mostly in Hebrew (except 'Lullaby in C,' which is sung both in English and in Rahel's Hebrew translation), their message is clear to speakers of any language: to take the time to rest and refresh ourselves. 'Ms. Jaskow's voice quality is rich, enchanting and extremely appealing as an Israeli-style 'traditional folk' artist.' -- Judith Pinnolis, Jewish Music WebCenter Rahel appears as a guest artist on Hanna Yaffe's 'Lullabies from Jerusalem,' Shuly Nathan's 'Open Roads' and 'Mostly Carlebach,' and Ray Scudero's 'With the Help of Angels.'
