5.0 out of 5 stars Peace through Music September 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The list of review excerpts is entirely accurate. The ensemble sets the tone of this album with a hauntingly sweet solo Armenian dudduk, which the ensemble soon joins into a nostalgic, slow dance. The oud continues the improvization, and before we are aware of it, we are transported to another place and time. The feeling and enchantment persists through the CD, whether clearly Israeli Jewish or Arab Sufi, or influenced by Turkish, Egypian, or Sefarad songs. The tempo is a fairly consistent andante, with an occasional allegro or largo. Do not expect rollicking dance music. The subtitle of "Sacred Music of the Middle East" is validated, for peace and brotherhood arises. Yuval Ron is a recipient of many grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Rockefeller Foundation and has lectured extensively.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Recording February 24, 2013
By J. Pour
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Good recording of Middle Eastern tunes, although it didn't strike me as all that dynamic. Professionally performed, but, it seems to me, without an obvious zeal or spirituality. The tunes are mostly subdued, but some are very nice. Nothing too bold here, however. I get the sense that this is more or less just a going-through-the-paces recording destined for the Western esoteric market. Likely not a purchase that I would repeat.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorite albums! September 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD
"Under the Olive Tree" by Yuval Ron is music that awakens your heart and soul. It is because that is the attunement of this outstanding musician and human being, Yuval Ron. Check out his website to get a glimpse of all that he does!

His ensemble is comprised of Jewish, Christian and Muslim musicians and vocalists, all accomplished in their instruments and in harmony with the work of spreading the message of peace.

This is one of my most favorite albums of all time and I can't imagine anyone would not love it, too.
