it was amazing
bookshelves: judaica

I'm going to file this into my "Read" category although it's really more of a workbook, anyhow. I'll continue to use it and return to it to learn and perfect my cantillation. That said, it's an amazingly easy workbook/CD pair that lays out and guides you through the different categories and individual tropes and trope markings so that, slowly but surely, you learn how to decode cantillation marks and musically chant from the Torah at worship services. It's better taken in small bites consistently over time, but I don't see how learning cantillation could be made any easier than it is here.
