"From my late father, Reb Shlomo Hakohen Schachter, I learned the modes of prayer and many songs of devotion and celebration. Fifteen years after his passing I recorded these songs, many of which have already been forgotten. They mostly represent a selection of pre-Holocaust hassidic devoutness and joy.

Songs 1 - 8 are in the genre of Basking In The Presence: Celebrating The Contemplative Secret. Songs 9 - 21 are in the genre of Dancing With God: Celebrating The Joyous Secret."

-- Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
