Easy Listening Hebrew Music

If you ever checked my blogger profile you will see that I enjoy listening to Messianic music. 
Most people have no idea what "Messianic music" means...or where one might go to listen to such music.

Messianic music is  music written primarily by Jewish people who have come to know Jesus as their Messiah.
They often compose lyrics in Hebrew (many times using blocks of scriptures) and then often the lyrics switch to English and then back to Hebrew. 
I first listened to Messianic music while I was in college; the Messianic music group Lamb had just released their first LP and I just couldn't stop listening to it. 

I laugh now to realize that the parts of the songs that I didn't understand were sung in Hebrew, and I sang along with them because it just sounded great to me.
Little did I know I was actually learning huge passages of the Old Testament in the original Hebrew. 

Anyhoo...

I thought I would just pass along the fact that lately I have been enjoying listening to Messianic music on my computer by going to Google and then typing in: 

wstw.fm

There are lots of choices as to how to listen to it on line, but even techno challenged me managed to get it up.

Good stuff.

Thought I would just share, in case you might be interested.

(Not every song played has Hebrew in it; and non-Jewish composers are featured as well, but I find the Hebrew enbedded songs are still my favorites).

I used to have an album done by Lamb. It's been years since I've heard that style. I'll have to check it out again.

Thanks for the link! I'm going to give that a try; as you know, that's a favorite music genre of mine too.
