Ezra 2

Not much to report here - long list of names. Spelling variations in singing - a few times spelled with a double r. So what seems normal in say 2 Samuel 19:36 שָׁרִ֣ים וְשָׁר֑וֹת, in Ezra is spelled מְשֹׁרְרִ֥ים וּֽמְשֹׁרְר֖וֹת.

I wonder how the text is set to music? It is more varied than I might have expected. What should be the mode? Below is simply the default. The augmented intervals are so prevalent here, I might expect a sharpened note - F#. Perhaps major-minor would work better or even just plain major.


Ezra 2 Fn Min Max Syll
וְאֵ֣לֶּה ׀ בְּנֵ֣י הַמְּדִינָ֗ה הָֽעֹלִים֙ מִשְּׁבִ֣י הַגּוֹלָ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר הֶגְלָ֛ה נְבוּכַדְנֶצַּ֥ר מֶֽלֶךְ־בָּבֶ֖ל לְבָבֶ֑ל
