Goodman e-Kvetcher

From the Artscroll Yom Kippur Machzor, the beginning of the Kapporos ceremony:

Children of Man, who sat in darkness and the shadow of death, shackled in affliction and iron. He removed them from darkness and the shadow of death, and broke open their shackles. The fools - because of their sinful path and their iniquities they were afflicted. Their soul abhorred all food and they reached the portals of death...

BOTH mentioned Protestantism in a comment to my previous post. Doesn't the above sound just like a Puritan hymn?

And there are people who say religious music doesn't speak to them. Hah. Put this text to music and just watch 'em cut loose.

Fire and Brimstone.

Either that or Victorian poetry.

I am not clique-ish with the klicky references.

I hope you're servers are prepared for the flood of traffic these links will send to your blog :)
