Meira Warshauer has devoted much of her creative output to Jewish themes
and their universal message. She writes, 'The Torah, Jewish teaching and
tradition, is likened to water. It is the source of blessing and goodness,
filling all who drink from its well with the knowledge of God. I hope
this recording will help to satisfy our thirst and encourage us to
continue opening our hearts to the Eternal Spirit in each of us.'
The CD was recorded in Bratislava, Slovakia, by the Slovak Radio
Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonic Chorus conducted by Kirk Trevor,
with soloists Stephanie Gregory, soprano, Jennifer Hines, mezzo soprano,
Michael Hendrick, tenor, and Carol Potter, narrator. Read a review of
