Sephardic Pizmonim Project

Digital archive of the Sephardic community of Aleppo

The Sephardic Pizmonim Project website was created in 2004 by David Matouk Betesh in order to preserve the liturgical music heritage of the Sephardic community of Aleppo in Syria (the “Aram Soba” rite).

The website’s archives contain recordings of liturgical poems (piyyutim) from the anthology Shir Ushbaha Hallel VeZimrah. These songs are listed in order of the occasions on which they are sung and according to their maqam.

The website also seeks to preserve and promote the custom of singing the liturgy of each Shabbat according to a specific maqam.
