ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Magevet is a Jewish, Hebrew and Israeli a cappella group from Yale University. All of its members are undergrads devoted to spreading beautiful music of the Jewish tradition to the far corners of the globe. Magevet was founded in the spring of 1993 (allegedly by a bunch of Orthodox men singing in a sauna), and has since then entertained audiences the world over with its delightful music and spunky schtick. The Magevet repertoire is extremely diverse, spanning from liturgical Renaissance arrangements to the folk melodies of the Abayudaya tribe - and everything in-between. Most of our music has been arranged by current or former members of the group, and so our performances always include a combination of old and new, near and far, and more than a modicum of humor!

Magevet regularly travels nationally and internationally. We undertake two major tours and numerous minitours per year. Recently, our major tours have brought us to South Florida, Amsterdam, Paris, London, Memphis and New Orleans, and our minitours reach out to local areas from Boston to Philadelphia. Our members run the gamut in religious background and area of study, but we are united by a singular passion for our music, and this enables us to achieve a supreme harmony, both musically and socially.

Magevet is a tax-exempt nonprofit group. All proceeds from CD sales help achieve the group's mission of bringing beautiful Jewish music to communities the world over.

Kudos from a former Magevite, I always love getting the new Magevet albums to see what the kiddies are up to. It's been neat to see the repertoire grow and become more diverse over the years and fun to see the evolution of individual song arrangements through the year as well. I wasn't expecting to hear the Beatles, that was a nice touch!

My favorite tracks on this album are Yismechu and Yachad.
