Babylon: A Music Video

Imagine yearning for something 2000 years.

We are about to embark on a three-week journey to relive the Babylonian exile and mourn the destruction of the holy temple, increasing the yearning for Jerusalem in all its glory.

It’s a time for reflection and yearning.

Who Are We Remembering?

The song is beautiful but for those without background it sounds like it's Babylon we are remembering and not Jerusalem. Likewise the back views are obvious to those who recognize them but the penny won't drop for those who don't.
