daily kaddish: on the eve of Ziggy’s yahrtzeit


Tomorrow is Mira’s beloved dog Ziggy’s yahrtzeit.

Last night’s in-person collaboration was a return to basics—the text right out of the tsiddur, and the music right off Kogan’s page—and Mira’s comment afterward was that she was relieved to hear Kogan as written again, but that she likes Kogan’s “Kaddish” best when it’s really, really slow.

So here you go, Mira—on the eve of Ziggy’s yahrtzeit, a “Kaddish” that is about as slow as I can do it, and with your reading from last night edited into chunks that fit into the interstices of Kogan’s phrases.
