Have I sent you my setting of Jonah based on the melodies in the te’amim? I even found a nod to Gershwin.

Thanks for this Bob. I found it fascinating, especially the relation of music to text, and at times the sense that the music was interpreting the scene, mood and circumstances in the story itself. So much to be gleaned, or mined, from such a short text. Thanks again Bob, and all good wishes for your continuing projects.
