Press Quotes

"The music of Régalim contains all of Maayani’s characteristic features – oriental melodic pattern built out of small intervals, heterophony, obstinate melodic and rhythmical rhythmical repetitions, impressionistic coloring, etc. The composer gives us an almost visual description of the holy pilgrimage to the Temple: the festive Proclamation, the mysterious Prayer and the almost pagan, ecstatic Dance of Spring. In these three sections Maayani carries one away by sheer orchestral force – sweeping rhythm and melodic obstinacy... All this prepares the listener for the beautiful vocal part, a lyrical yet almost emotional interpretation of Psalm 122: the last movement, ‘Procession’, with its alternating vocal and instrumental parts is probably the most original part..." (Benjamin Bar-Am, Jerusalem Post, 19 Oct 1969)
