    Bet-Gaza בת גצא

    His Excellency adapted the lyrics and music for the Bet-Gaza (בת גצא) and other ancient Aramaic hymns written by Bar Daisan, and then reverse translated them into Netseran Aramaic, for use in the English language version of the Nazarani Rîte. This CD is the English language versions of these songs, from which the tones were adapted.
