Here’s the second in my series on Passover music. Like the first entry, I’m keeping with the wonderful seder tune, Had Gayda (or as Western Wind transliterates the title, Chad Gadyo). But unlike Yehoram Gaon’s Sephardic version of the song tonight we’ll hear a version written by the famed American Jewish composer, Moishe Oysher. This is not the tune I grew up with, but I learned it as an adult and found it much more lively and musically compelling than the one I knew as a child.
So give a listen to the wonderful Oysher version of Chad Gadyo (hear it).
