Bayat - بياتي

Introduction

Maqam Bayat (בייאת  / ביאת ) is the most common of the Syrian Maqamat. More songs in the pizmonim book are classified under this maqam than any other.

Bayat, which in Arabic means 'a complete oath of loyalty to an emir', symbolizes an pledge of allegience between two parties (as is the case with Bar Misvah- an oath between man and God).

Bayat is associated with the occasion of a Bar Misvah due to its wealth of Bar Misvah pizmonim. It is used on Mossaei Shabbat due to its wealth of Mossaei Shabbat pizmonim. This maqam has a mellow mood to it and therefore is used for Arbit Mossaei Shabbat and Mossaei Yom Tob when the mood of ending the day is such. Bayat is also used for the birth of a baby girl. A possible explanation for this is that daughter in Hebrew is BAT, which sounds somewhat similar to Bayat.

The Jews of Damascus use this maqam to close a Humash.

319 246 מעזי אז כלה קץ Raphael Tabbush “Mauzi,” or “My Fortress” (BAYAT, page 246), is a song that is very popular. H Raphael Tabbush is likely the author of this pizmon, but this is uncertain. The melody of this song is from the Arabic song “Baladi Askara Min Araf il Lama.” This song is associated with the Shalosh Regalim festivals due to a brief reference to them. The melody of this pizmon is typically applied to Shav’at Aniyim for weeks of Maqam BAYAT. Despite this being a song for the most happy of holidays, this song is actually very sad. It asks why has God abandoned us and why has the Messiah not yet arrived? It describes how our enemies have taken over our vineyards and have killed us. The climax of the song, “Al Damam,” describes how “my tears fall on their blood" (the blood of fellow Jews) and how our tears are enough to fill rivers. The four verse piece concludes with an open question: “Where has my Beloved gone; to Whom I rejoice three times a year?” Commentary on Pizmon N. Salem

346 266 אל מאד נעלה Moses Ashear The pizmon “El Meod Na’ala” (BAYAT, page 266) is one of the most famous compositions written by cantor H Moshe Ashear (1877-1940). This was written in honor of the groom Mr Elie J Gindi (born in 1900, Syria) for his wedding (circa 1924 in Brooklyn, NY). The acrostic of the pizmon is “Eliah Moshe” with the first word of each of the three stanzas spelling “Eliah” and the second word of each stanza spelling “Moshe.” The names of the bride’s father, Moses (Attieh), and the bride, Rachel, are alluded to in the first and third stanza’s respectively. The melody of this pizmon is from polka music from Istanbul, Turkey. In the prayers, this melody is commonly applied to Semehim on weeks of Maqam BAYAT. This song is also traditionally used as the PIZMON SEFER TORAH for Shabbat Shemot because of it mentioning Moshe and Aharon, two important people introduced in this Torah portion.
