THE MUSIC OF ISLAM - Volume Fourteen: Mystic Music Through the Ages


PLEASE VOTE IN THE POLL!


The title of this one seems a bit ominous so I'll give you a little bit of what I found written on it...
Apologies first as this is just a copy&paste from the official site...Not that I don't think you could have found it yourself or anything!

'This volume focuses on the mystic music of the Islamic world—specifically Turkish mystics. To Westerners, Islamic mysticism is practically synonymous with Sufism. Sufi poetry and music have endured for centuries in various Islamic countries. In the mystical brotherhoods music always had a revered and acknowledged place. Although the term music is never used in mystical writings, but rather listening—voice, gesture and musical instruments are all aids to the devotee in his spiritual exercise, which leads him to ecstasy and to supreme union with God. In every case, the music draws its inspiration from the text, and its structure from a sophisticated set of modes, rhythms, and traditional forms.

The tracks on this recording literally date from the V-XIV/11th-20th centuries featuring many famous compositions such as Tekbir and Salavat-i Serife, known throughout the Islamic world as two of the masterworks of one of Turkey's greatest composers. Also featured are ilahis (hymns), excerpts of the sema ritual and dhikr (zikr in Turkey) ceremonies. Completing the volume is a vocal performance of Surah 19, Ayet 115-117 of the Qur'an
'

My review(!abuse of the term!) of this one is simply.: Aaaah. Love it.

This guy hitmewithit is a worthless wanker with too much idle time on his hands. What about getting the fuck out of bed, getting a penicillin shot, and getting a fucking paying job? How's that for an idea, you shitstirring layabout?

Posts some free moslem shit and he's a hero for cultural diversity? Like he was giving away SS gear. They're only clothes, right? Prick.

Go to Mindanao, Iran, Iraq or even Holland. You can have all the islamic shit you want, up close and personal.

You can even be diverse. The muzzies will give you that, just like they gave some diversity to Nick Berg and Theo van Gogh. They'll even sing one of the songs you like over your headless body.

Now, not often that I get accosted by such a worthless tunnel-minded bigot that it makes me actually laugh out loud but this morning you changed all that.
the name calling and penicillin shot stuff...well that is a bit school playground but I will tell you that the illness I have can't be cured by a shot of an antibiotic ok. so forget that. thanks for the attempt at helping me though. Lets get on to the real meat of your comment though right:
What planet are you on?
Interesting that you chose to be a 'Mr Anonymous' to post such a distorted view of society, religion and your imagined links between islamic fundamentalism and islamic music.
You my friend are the fucking Prick with a capital 'P' here.
Get yourself a fucking education before I come and ram a fucking Koran down your throat. Not that I am a muslim, I just think it would take a book of a similar size to make you really shut the fuck up. But have a bible for the job if you prefer.
Please, reply with a little more of a solid argument next time.

I never even imagined such Islamic recordings existed until I chanced upon your blog. Thanks for sharing my friend. I owe you one, err actually 14 albums in all.

Later..

Hi!! (from Holland)

I really enjoy the music you bring to our (mine) attention. It's not all my cup of tea, but it's surely worth listening to. Just my wife is complaining about the religious thing she seems to hear....
(I just hear great music....)

I remember visiting before, a few months ago, and compared to then I think the site has goten pretty lame. Your links have occasionally led to useless downloaders who want to download sex tapes or want you to join their club.

Overall, not too impressed.

@ Peter! hi there, glad you liked the music. Tell your wife that it isn't religious just because it sounds like it!!! It really is great music!

@ the poster above me...
What the HELL are you on about?
sex downloaders that want you to join their club???
I think you might be referring to my use of the freehost called sexuploader.com which, is a free host site like rapidshare except there is NO TIME LIMIT on the files and also the download speeds for YOU and OTHERS is much faster than others like megaupload etc. I do this for the users and you fucking complain?
Go fuck yourself you imbecile!
If seeing sex ads upsets you then why don't you DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT???
A simple bloody HOSTS file (as I use myself) stops uyou from seeing about 90% of any ads and I never see a single google ad or any of those at sexuploader.com.
It is up to YOU how PROTECTED your little eyes are from the horrendously offensive TEXT sex-related ads that you might find oon that site!
I can't configure your PC for you and I can't teach you the most basic of PC security.
by the way, that hosting site is still 100% safe. It doesn't try to download stuff to your PC or give you any spyware or anything else untoward. the only complaint you could have is that it made you see the SEX word for a minute whilst you waited to download a link.
Get over it you moron.
