Sephardic Music

Phrygian Dominant Scale

Spanish-Jewish Scale

The Phrygian dominant scale, also called harmonic minor perfect fifth below, dominant flat 2 flat 6 (in jazz), the fifth mode of the harmonic minor scale or simply Spanish-Jewish scale, is constructed by raising the third of the Phrygian mode and is the fifth mode of the harmonic minor scale, the fifth being the dominant. It has the word "dominant" in its name because like the dominant seventh chord it has a major 3rd note and a flattened 7th note.It is also known as Ahava Rabbah (great love) used in Hebrew prayers and Cabalistic piyuts.
