Nigun Mizmor L'Dovid
« on: June 22, 2014, 05:50:00 PM »
About 40 years ago I heard a tune to Mizmor LDovid Hashem Roi lo echsor (Tehillim 23) sung at Sholosh Seudos at Camp Ohr Shrage and then with Rabbi Wolfson at Camp Torah Vodaas. It is a slow moving niggun - one of the most beautiful niggunim I have ever heard.  Every Shabbos I sing part of it, as I don't remember it completely, and promise my family that someday I will find someone who knows this niggun and will be willing to sing it to me so I could learn it. 

Do you know which nigun I am referring to and would you be able to somehow get it to me i.e. record it on your phone and PM it to me or some other way?

I would greatly appreciate it and my wife and children would appreciate it even more.

That's it. Thank you all so much. I'll try to locate Benzion Shenker's album where he sings this song.

The album he sings it in is (מדור לדור (א.

There's also a stunning version done by Yitzchak Meir Helfgot and Itzhak Perlman in Eternal Echoes.

I don't think that the Moditz version is what they sing in Eternal Echoes.

Both songs I linked to are the same Benzion Shenker song, and both are Moditz.

He sings a different Mizmor L'Dovid in מבשר טוב, maybe that's the one you mean.
