We've Got The Music

This song is by Abie Rotenberg and appears on the album Journeys III (1992).

As long as there has been a Jewish nation, music has been an integral component of its history and culture. From the Shira sung by our ancestors at the Yam Suf, to the brilliant compositions of Dovid Ha'melech. From the exquisite harmonies of the Le'Viim in the Beis Ha'Mikdosh, to the musical expressions of faith contained in the melodies of the great Chassidic Rebbes of Europe.
But in this century... and even more so, during the past 30 years, there has been a virtual explosion of creative Jewish song.
