It is the City of Gold, the City of Dreams, the sacred heart of the world for Jews, Christians and Moslems alike. Passionate love songs have been written to it, as well as wistful and moving prayers. Host Ellen Kushner explores the many sounds and faces of Jerusalem, with music from Biblical psalms in settings by Purcell and Monteverdi, as well as traditional Sephardic and Ashkenazi songs, Negro spirituals, contemporary gospel and music from a group of Arab and Israeli artists performing together.
