A tiny little bit of the world had been put back into place, a spark raised.

No Responses.

Dear Mr. Rewald,

I just wanted to send a few kind thoughts from Berlin to you and the choir. I listened to your concert in Berlin at the Lewandowski-Festival and simply loved the performance. Fortunately, I bought the CD, so I can still listen to the songs from time to time. Today after the Shabbat service, a friend started humming the Adon Olam to precisely the melody that you are singing on the CD, and it was because of your CD that I was able to sing along. We wondered afterwards where the melody might have originated, but nobody knew.

Sometimes, when I am listening to the CD, I think about how you spoke about your family and the family of one of the choir members coming from Berlin. It reminds me of a friend of mine whose family emigrated to the United States in 1938. She has just reclaimed German citizenship for herself and her husband (who also has German ancestors) and their kids. It means a lot to her, and, on a different level, also to me who was born in Germany in 1973. Not just for the obvious reason that this is how we met. It feels as if a tiny little bit of the world had been put back into place, a spark raised.

Please come back to Berlin next year!
Best regards,
Isabelle Wagner
