Ishay Ribo – Seder Ha’Avoda

Ishay Ribo is releasing a brand new, somewhat magical song, from within the Tefillos of Yom Kippur, the highlight of the day, “Seder Ha’Avodah”.

Ishay composed the song about two years ago, during davening on Yom Kippur. The recitation of the Avodah of the Kohen Gadol in the Kodesh Ha’Kodashim deeply moved him, and the tune almost exploded in his heart. “Whenever in the past I got to this part of the Mussaf Davening on Yom Kippur, where you feel as though you are escorting the Kohen Gadol in the Beis Ha’Mikdash, I always got so emotional and I wanted to share the experience that I’ve always had outwards.”

Ribo was particular about arranging this piece with a full orchestral sound, with full string sections and a big band, in order to grant the listener a small taste of the feeling of the Avodah of the Leviim in the Beis Ha’Mikdash.

Seder Ha’Avodah is the second single off of his upcoming new album, called Elul 5779, due out next week.
