Tune of the Day: Chad Gadya

Traditional Passover song

This playful cumulative song (where verses get longer and longer) is traditionally sung at the end of the Passover Seder, the Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover. The melody, which is believed to have its roots in Medieval German folk music, first appeared in a Haggadah (a text that sets forth the order of the Passover Seder) printed in Prague in 1590.

Thanks to Elan for suggesting this tune!
