Song for Selim

Janice Finlay A.B.H. CD
Written By: Janice Finlay


Song for Selim: This is written in honour of my great-grandfather Selim Joseph, from whom it seems I may have inherited at least some of my musical abilities.  I was intrigued by the fact that he married outside his Jewsih religion, but chose to continue practicing it on his own.  The harmonic flavor of this piece brings to mind many of the Jewish melodies I have heard over the years and the meditative quality of it suits the solitary religious pursuits of Selim.
