In this text the author, a musicologist argues that the accentual system preserved in the Masoretic Text was originally a method of recording hand signals (2chironomy) by which temple musicians were directed in the performance of music. She explains her reconstruction of these notations which has allowed her to perform around the world using only the Hebrew text as a score."

After her studies at the Conservatoire National Superior de Paris, Suzanne Haïk-Vantoura made her career as an organist, teacher, composer and music theorist. During World War II, she first attempted to decipher the musical signs (teamim) of the Hebrew Bible, the original meaning of which had been lost. Since 1970 she has devoted herself exclusively to this task and to the publication of the texts she has deciphered.Language Notes:
