Psalms 96

I know this is not in sequence - but nonetheless, it is a fine example of shaping the strophes using the melodic lines. Try this performance here. Just listen - the strophes and chorus are evident. All the music is an interpretation of the diacritics above and below the text based on the deciphering key of Suzanne Haïk-Vantoura. It's the same key that is mapped without modification or adjustment to the entire body of Scripture showing its prosody, it beauty, and its tone of voice. Talk about early recording technology!
