Liner Note Author: Hubert Haddad.

This highly intriguing contemporary Arabic-language setting of the world's oldest known epic combines song and recitation to a small Euro-Arab musical ensemble with spoken passages, in a re-creation (imaginative rather than literal, of course) of the way in which the earliest epics may have been performed. The notes provide an English prose translation of each section, but infuriatingly gives no information on the performers or the concept behind this version. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
