New Melody for Elohai Neshamah

"God the soul you have given me is pure." I wrote my setting of Elohai Neshamah as a meditation for myself, and for friends with whom I daven. When chanting Elohai Neshamah, I affirm my God connection, your God connection, and therefore our inherent connectedness. When we define our encounters as soul-to-soul, then we are choosing to recognize the essential goodness that lies at the heart of each other. 


Note: The audio track, sheet music, and further commentary about this text can be found at http://alexandermassey.com/elohai-nshamah/. On that page, you will find more about the symbolism embedded in the musical shapes, and simple symbolic meditative movements to accompany the chant.
