This wonderful collection by the great Rudy Tepel Orchestra features selections most often heard at Lubavitch weddings. Rabbi Schneur Zlaman (1745-1813), the founder of Chabad, believed that there were great heights of spiritual ecstasy that could be reached only through song.
Chabad music differs somewhat from other Chassidic music by reason of it's pensive, introspective character, a quality that transcends the simply joyous, ecstatic melody itself. the meditative nigun, which reveals it' mystical depths most fully when sung, is represented on this CD by the Rav's Nigun (#4). The other melodies are all lively tunes characteristic of the overflowing happiness of the wedding feast, and calculated to make one dance.
This collections is a wonderful companion to the Rudy Tepel CD, "Chassidic Wedding Dance Melodies."
