I'm listening to the recordings of the great Is Pateer and I noticed a small difference between two recordings. Hopefully someone who has learned it can point me in the right direction.
Ibrahim Ayad: http://tasbeha.org/media/index.php?st=Hymns/Annual/Deacon_Responses/Ibrahim_Ayad/Liturgy/04.amen_espateer_great.1845.mp3
The biggest difference that I'm currently struggling with is on the second repetition of "Peniot Ethowab En-arshi-erevs" in the third paragraph.
In Ibrahim Ayad's recording, at approximately 7:12, he starts saying it. He says "Peniot ethowa-" and then he does three
up-and-downs followed by two hazzats to lead into the end of the word "ethowab."
In the HICS recording, at approximately 6:37, the cantor starts the same part, but he does four
up-and-downs followed by two hazzats to lead into the end of the word.
Additionally, I watched a video of this hymn being prayed at Mississauga last Easter, and they did four. I know sometimes Ibrahim Ayad "combines" hazzats but I can't hear him saying four up-and-downs at all, so I'm wondering if maybe he missed it?
So what is correct? Four or three?
Pray for me,
