The Shira Centre's debut album, The London Girls Choir
- Silver Lining was released in England in June 2004.
Amid much anticipation from the American quarters,
it was later released worldwide, to critical acclaim.
The CD Silver Lining was simply the natural outcome
of different parts of Dena’s musical experiences
coming together. Namely, the incredibly talented Shira
Centre singers whom Dena wanted to showcase, Dena’s
refreshing and original compositions, combined with
her newfound interest in music arranging and sound
All but one of the songs were written
and composed by Dena Cohen. The exception is track no.
7, Yevarechecha, which is by Sam Glaser. The songs were
recorded in The Shira Centre Studio, and the music was
arranged by Dena Cohen and Yuval Havkin.
REVIEW of Silver Lining by SD
This CD has to be heard to be believed.
Breathtaking in musical scope, inspiring in its slow moving
tunes, sensational in its fast, leibedik songs, impressive
in its sheer versatility of style and range... It simply
has no parallel in Jewish music.
The girls voices blend together beautifully,
and the soloists are outstandingly talented. You can hear
the hours and hours of work and training that went into
the singing alone - never mind the rest! The songs are
the type that you find yourself humming hours later, with
layers upon layers of gorgeous harmonies. The musical
accompaniment is perfectly suited to each song, and the
use and the choice of instruments is highly original.
This album has depth, that touches you, unlike any other.
It is a highly sophisticated and complex production, yet
somehow it is also stunningly simple.
There is something in Silver Lining for
everyone. Mothers' favourites tend to be the sentimental
Little Bird, Yevarechecha and the haunting Shabbos Spirit,
younger children seem to love One Nation, and Shiru Lashem,
while teenagers have gone wild over Mah Rabu and Avraham
Yagel. It's true to say that every time you listen to
the album Silver Lining, you'll notice something else.
You'd have to hear it in its entirety at least 20 times
in order to appreciate it.
Listening to the passage of songs, you're
taken on a breathtaking journey through Jewish life. When
you've finished the 11th song, you're left feeling uplifted
and inspired, and you'll want to start all over again!
