From the moment I arrived in Istanbul I liked the sound of the call to prayer; I find it comforting, somehow. When I moved into my first apartment in this city I was happy to find that the call of the muezzin (the man who “sings” the call to prayer from the minarets) in the small mosque just behind me was probably my favorite of all the calls I’d heard so far. Believe me, not all muezzins are created equal. Some have great voices and others not so great. And yes, it is definitely live.
