This year, instead of sending around cards or emails to our friends, family, and fans, we decided to do something a little more…musical. The melody we are whistling in our short Rosh Hashanah clip is traditionally sung before commencing the evening High Holiday prayers. This tune, something that we have been singing since our youths, is over a thousand years old and holds a special place in our tradition.
To the best of our knowledge, this also marks the first time an a cappella group has recorded entirely in whistled harmony. It was actually pretty difficult! Here’s wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and sweet new year! Feel free to use our musical Rosh Hashanah card to you as a card to send to your friends.
