Trope for standard Torah Cantalation as Well as for the most Infrequent Tunes

בס''ד

The Hebrew Bible known as the Torah of Moses can be sung according to Cantalation marks above or below the Hebrew words in a Hebrew Bible.  This post references links about how to sing according to these marks.

Additional Cantalation Marks

There are other Cantalation Marks besides the standard Cantalation marks and tunes referenced above that are infrequent yet very important in the Torah, the Hebrew Bible, the Five Books of Moses. These referenced links are to the Chabad web-site cantelation tool because of its ease of use and overwhelming number of users. However, keep in mind that indeed a particular synagogue or teacher has his own variation on how the songs are sung which can be equally correct if not more-so for a particular setting. Also, the Haftorah, Psalms, as well as other books in the Tanach have different tunes, some of which only apply for Ashkenasi Jews and others that apply for Sphardic Jews. Some tunes may indeed have been forgotten entirely (like the Ashkenasi Trope for the Psalms of King David as far as I know).

These additional Cantalation marks are Shalisheleth שלשלת , Karneh-Pahrah קרני-פרה , Mehrkah Kifulah מרכא כפולה , and Yehrach-Ben-Yohmoh ירח-בן-יומו .  More details about these additional Cantalation Marks follow.

Shalisheleth שלשלת Torah References

Flash cards were constructed referencing the Book (of the Five Books of Moses) as well as the reading portion and verse where Shalisheleth שלשלת is found. That way a student can practice what is most relevant to his Bar Mitzvah, for example. These flash cards appear in order from the earliest location in the Torah to the last to make it easiest to find the relevant reading part to practice or even to play a game in order to learn the subject matter.

Additional Cantalation Mark Locations

Cantalation marks Karneh-Pahrah קרני-פרה , Mehrkah Kifulah מרכא כפולה , and Yehrach-Ben-Yohmoh ירח-בן-יומו are described further below.

Karneh-Pahrah קרני-פרה

Karneh-Pahrah קרני-פרה occurs together with Yehrach-Ben-Yohmoh ירח-בן-יומו exactly one time in the Hebrew Torah, in the Torah portion describing the dimensions of the Levitical cities in the Holy Land of Israel. In the listing of the Trope Cantalation, however, Karneh-Pahrah קרני-פרה occurs first and thus is presented first here.

Mehrkah Kifulah מרכא כפולה Examples

Mehrkah Kifulah מרכא כפולה is found at least four times (if not more) in the Hebrew Torah. At this time, these four occurances are the only ones that I am aware of.

Mehrkah Kifulah מרכא כפולה Fourth Example

Note that this fourth study card example in the חומש Chumash The Living Torah by Rabbi Areh Kaplan lists this Mehrkah Kifulah מרכא כפולה trope mark as being in the last Alyiah reading - with six portions preceding it.  Sometimes the Torah portions of Mattoth and Massey are not combined, and this study card is written accordingly, assuming that the reading occurs last - as in that case.  On the ohter hand, the Chabad website lists the trope symbol as in the פָּסוּק (verse) מב  in the seventh reading portion of Mattoth מטות which is a little bit different also.  The two versions of the verse and reading parts are show below.

Sheet Music Links

Sheet music was inspired based on a tonal rendition of the trope Cantalation music to make it easier to remember the tone on Saturday - the Sabbath - the Hebrew Day of Rest. On such a day it is possible to read a hard paper copy of the music but not permissible to turn on an electrical device to sing the relevant Torah portion of the week. The sheet music was composed with the Score Creater application which also offers the option to export the music in MIDI format that can be widely played on many computers or hand-held smart-phones.

The tonally inspired transcription follows in the sheet music and music files below. Together with the flash cards that have the symbols themselves as well as their placement relative to the Hebrew words, or else the Mark chart at the beginning of the Rashi Book in the Hebrew Torah, one can sing and memorize the Cantalation.  The Cantalation marks that correspond to the PDF and it's sheet music are shown below.
