Moshe Habusha, Piyyut (Religious Devotional Poem), to the tune of Um Kulthum's "Al-Ward al-Gameel"

Read about the remarkable Jerusalem cantor and payy'tan (one trained in the art of singing piyyutim) Moshe Habusha here.

A first-rate study of the piyyutim (and bakashot) is Kay Kaufman Shelemay's Let Jasmine Rain Down.
