Exodus 2.0: Idelsohn Society Passover Mix 2010

I love it when I get scooped by non-Jewish media. It gives me hope. Today I was beaten to the punch by my favorite blog, Boing Boing, who featured this pretty fabulous mix tape of Passover music clips compiled by the gang at the Idelsohn Society. The mix isn't really DJ quality, certainly not up there with Socalled's Seder, but does a fine job of collecting a bunch of odd and wonderful recordings.

Exodus 2.0: Idelsohn Society Passover Mix 2010 by The Idelsohn Society

The best part....you can download it right now and use it for your pre- or post-seder sound track. I know I'm going to. Or throw it on a thumbdrive as a great present for your afikomen finders. (If you do, wrap the it in a $5 bill. Just sayin')

Tracks include:
Richard Tucker, "The Kiddush"
Darondo, "Let My People Go"
Socalled, "The Four Questions"
Moe Jaffe & Henry Tobias, "Passover Time on the Range"
G-d Is My Co-Pilot, "Dayenu"

We consider this time of year in Israel as the period of freedom - celebrating and remembering Passover, Shoah memorial, Soldiers memorial day and Independence day.

Have a meaningful and peaceful season
