description: Naomi Shemer’s famous song, composed in 1967, is a love song to the city of Jerusalem, extolling its beauty. The lyrics were inspired by a medieval poem by Yehudah Ha-Levy. The music was inspired by a popular Basque melody. Braun’s impressionistic arrangement, more than any other, captures the mystery and spirituality of a city, sacred to the three Abrahamic faiths.
