Dr. Charles Jirkovsky explores the music of ancient Israel from a musicological perspective. This book takes an academic approach in examining the instrumentation, notation, function, and tonality of music in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament.

"Charles Jirkovsky's book is easily the most thorough and well-researched work in this field to date. Music in the Bible fills a long-vacant void in both biblical and musicological studies and is an important addition to these fields."
Taylor Smith, Ph.D. in Musicology
Associate Professor of Music
Cuyamaca College

"Charles' book is a fountain of knowledge and inspiration for anyone interested in music in the Bible. It transcends denominations and is biblically sound. My appreciation for music has grown deeper thanks to Charles' extensive research and work."
Pastor Andy Lopez
Springs of New Life Church

"Charles has done something remarkable with this book. He has made a subject that normally would exist in the esoteric realm of academia accessible for us all. His research is exhaustive and his insights into instruments and tracing their historical precedents fascinating."
Rabbi Benj Fried
Temple Emanu-El San Diego
