We hope to have a new EP "Go'eleinu Chai" (Our Redeemer Lives) out by spring 2019. Here is what we have in the works:
"Tzur Mishelo and Psalm 23" Tzur Mishelo is a traditional Hebrew song that is often used as an after meal grace. I put Psalm 23 to this Sephardic tune in order to teach my students to memorize this important Psalm. We realized how fitting this song is with the original as we dine at the table that HaShem has prepared for us both physically and spiritually.
"Y'Hallelu" This is a song of praise to Adonai, which is also a part of the liturgy. In Hebrew and English anc composed in the Sephardic style, this song states: "Let them praise the name of Adonai for His name alone is exalted. His glory is above the earth and heaven. He hath given glory unto His people, praise to all His faitfhul ones, to the children of Israel, and people near to Him. HALLELUJAH!"
"The Chaplain's Prayer" This song was inspired by the story during WWII of 4 Chaplains (A Jewish, and 3 Christian Chaplains) and how they laid down their lives for their brethren. Many of you know that Gabriel is a chaplain for our local fire department.
"What He Has Promised" A beautiful song about what Abba has promised us and what He does NOT promise us. You will see His wonderful promises far overshadow our trials and battles.
"Go'el - The Kinsman Redeemer" The role of Kinsmann Redeemer is an important one: He brings up seed, redeems from slavery, pays the debt, redeems the land and is the blood avenger. Our Messiah is the ultimate fulfillment of this.
BONUS TRACK!: "Dia Del Mesias" Acoustic Version: This a translation in Spanish of our song, "Day of Messiah" set to an all acoustic background. We think you will like this new rendition and we are happy to reach out to all our Spanish speaking Mishpocha!
Any donations given here will go directly to the production of this new project:
"Koveh Adonai" EP (5 Songs) CD was released in April of 2016.
"Koveh Adonai" The Lumbrosos CD #3
Many of you have already heard, worshiped and danced to some of our new songs and have asked when these new songs will be available. We are looking forward to recording so we can share them with others. We hope to get to the studio sometime in 2016 to produce our next collection of songs. Here is a peak at what we have in store:
* Koveh Adonai (Isaiah 40:31) This lively song with a Sephardi beat is taken from Isaiah 40:31 and is in both English and Hebrew. "He who puts his trust in Adonai, he shall never falter... He who puts his trust in Adonai, he shall not be moved. He who trusts in El Shaddai, he shall grow the wings of eagles...."
* Out of Bozra (Isaiah 63:1) I, Christine, received an early birthday gift from my husband and sons: A middle eastern keyboard! As I was trying it out when I first got it, this melody came. We continued to develop the song as we traveled on our 2015 summer tour. As I made a simple recording of the melody on my phone, the words "Mighty to Save" came to me over and over again. So I turned it over to Patrick, my lyricist, and he did some research. This passage "Mighty to Save" is connected to a Messianic prophecy about Messiah coming from Bosra with a garment stained red from pressing out the grapes of wrath. We await the return of Messiah when He shall come to mete out judgement on His enemies and vindicate His followers. In light of the persecution of believers world wide, we felt this a very timely subject. (written June 2015) Here is Patrick's midrash on this passage: The Book of Genesis tells us about five kings who came to conquer the Land Abraham had received by divine mandate. As they did they captured Lot, Abraham's nephew, and his family. As a man of war, in company with his servants and those covenanted with him, Abraham comes from the East to rescue his kin. The Biblical account further tells us that in his attempt to free his own kin, the patriarch also delivers the nations from the hands of the conquering enemy. At the end of times, as a Man of war, Mashiach will also come from the East in a garment dipped in the blood to rescue His kin, His people Israel from the hands of a devilish conquering enemy who would conquer His Land. As He does, he will also deliver the nations from its hands. (Genesis 14; Isaiah 63:1-4).
*The Ancient Olive Tree "East of Jerusalem there is an old olive tree...." This song brings a parable of an olive tree, the new and old branches, the prophetic significance. A song of the Timeless Kingdom...
*"Ma Navu" This is our rendition of the traditional song--ramped up with the Sephardic twist that is typical of the Lumbroso style. If you are used to dancing with to this song, get ready for high gear.
* "Vayikrah Sh'mo" This is one of our favorite songs taken from Isaiah. "And He Shall be Called..." Wonderful, Counselor, Prince of Peace, Everlasting Father... Written by our favorite author/composers Sue and Steve McConnell , with their permission.
Coming soon in fall of 2016
*AL Chet: This song is based on the traditional Jewish prayer of supplication to Avinu Malkeinu for Yom Kippur. It enumerates the different sins of us all, and helps us reflect on our "teshuva", returning to Him
* "You're Beautiful" This is a song dedicated to our wonderful daughter, her husband and their children. As parents, it is fulfilling to see that through the struggles of adolescence and the lessons of the parents of adolescents, we see the fruits of our adult children. A simple song that many parents could relate to.
*"Song Of Miriam" Get out the tamborines and timbrels and dance to this joyous song of praise and worship like Miriam of old. This is a very energetic song that will make you get on your feet!
AND... a few traditional songs such as.... "Avinu Malkeinu" " Shalom Aleichem" etc. and some more new compositions too!
Thank You! Todah Rabah!
Many folks don't realize that it can take several hours of studio time to complete ONE song, sometimes because we get "NERVOUS" when recording, sometimes human error, and sometimes we just get something new and need to change it. Studio time is VERY expensive! Most of you know that Patrick and I dedicate most of our time to our ministry of teaching youth, Hebrew Lessons, Torah Study, sharing , writing, visiting, counseling and our home congregation. We just don't have the extra money to put into the CD. Think $10 or $20 is too small? NOPE! Everything helps! Thanks for your gift, great or small! Thanks for helping to get our music and our message out. 100% of your donation here will go to our next CD.
