description: Yuli Engel (1868-1927) was a Russian-Jewish music critic, composer, journalist, writer, and folklorist. Engel was part of an ethnographic team that collected Jewish folk songs and he gave a lecture on the subject on the subject to the Moscow Imperial Society in 1900. He was among the founders of the Society of Jewish Folk Music in St. Petersburg and composed many works based on Jewish folklore. Engel emigrated to Palestine in 1922. “By the Shores of the Jordan” is a lush dramatic setting of a poem by the nineteenth-century Russian poet Apollon Maikov, expressing the yearning for the Holy Land and its Jordan River.
