Al Ha-Michyah

R. Ari Chwat sent in a submission to the Lookjed discussion list (his post is not yet available online) that he has recorded a song of the long blessing Al Ha-Michyah to make it easy for children to memorize the words. You can listen to it here.

It's not like there isn't already a tune in use. All of my children learned it with this tune. I just happen to think that the current tune absolutely butchers the words and teaches children to mispronounce the blessing. Is the new tune any better? I don't know. It seems complicated to me but what do I know about such things? When we get it in the mail on a fundraising CD, then I'll know that it has become mainstream.
