Late-Breaking News

The Jewish Week rounds up reaction to the disclosure last month that the melody of "Jerusalem of Gold" is taken from a Basque melody. We linked most of the mentioned blogs when the story broke. Interestingly, although the article names two Basque bloggers and quotes from their blogs, it doesn't share their blog url's. Odd.

Here's a roundup by Basque blogger Ingeleraz of the blogosphere coverage of the story. As we noted at the time, his original post on the story is a history lesson worth learning.

The JW article does contain two links to mp3's of the original Basque version of the tune.
