PEREK SHIRAH 1 + 2



Perek Shirah literally means 'chapter of song' in Hebrew and is the title of a book allegedly by King David enumerating the ways the natural world speaks of God's attributes. For me it's the title of a series which illustrates various emotions and ideas that could be sung.

These two compositions (on the reverse of the milkweed paper), have similar compositions~ really! They use the same 'scale and notes' to sing a different song!
