Cantor Yaakov Stark - Cantorial Classics

It is rare that Klal Yisroel should be preparing for the Yom Tov of Pesach in such difficult circumstances, whether it is the fear generated by the wave of terror in the Eretz Yisroel or the anxiety surrounding the grinding war in Ukraine. But amid the peril, the light of Redemption is hidden. It is therefore precisely this time that Chazzan Yaakov Stark presents his "Umipnei Chato'einu".

"Umipnei Chato'einu" serves as a sequel to Stark's first clip two months ago, a premiere release which was greeted joyfully by music lovers. This composition, too, is the work of producer Meir Briskman.

"Umipnei Chata'einu" was composed by Yaakov Rapaport. Stark chose to release it at this time in honor of Rosh Chodesh Nissan, a month which heralds the ultimate Geulah and the building of the Beis Hamikdash.

Stark is accompanied by the international pianist Menachem Bristowski and sings alongside the Core Music Collective choir. Adding to this, this exciting piece was filmed in the Beis Medrash Hagadol in Tel Aviv - where the heavenly voices and sounds are accentuated by the vibrations in the atmosphere.
